On Saturday 24th May 2014 fourteen members enjoyed a very informative visit to the bridge and engine room of the Isle of Inishmore ferry, whilst berthed at Pembroke Dock. Hosted by Captain Gerry Burns, those present were entertained with an overview of the ship and operational capabilities. A visit to the engine room was also included and it was found that the engines were painted a nice shade of irish clover green! That's as technical as we are going to getOur.  Thanks to Irish Ferries for arranging the visit. Remember Rule 52 of the COLREGS states- Fibreglass gives way to steel!
