Sea Express 1 - On The Move

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2005

SEA EXPRESS 1 was noted with her engines running around 11:25 on Saturday December 12. At around 12:13 she came off the fitting out quay at Northwestern Ship Repairers turned around and proceeded back to the quay. She has regained Steam Packet red "funnel" colours though no bands as yet. The Irish Sea Express logo has been removed from her starboard side. Presumably the "about turn" will enable the logo to be removed from the port side. This is the first time that the ship has moved since she retired to the West Float after completing the final sailing to Dublin on October 08, 2005.
