No, I don't think so. But I know them if you want to relay a question, or contact them directly via their web site.

A great site by the way.

MV Dirona

Looks to be a well sorted and traveled vessel.

I thought I'd seen something about a sale though now, of course I can't seem to re-locate it....

I also thought I saw something previously about a sale?

They crossed to Kinsale and are now in my old stomping grounds in Lough Swilly. In fact my brother walked down the marina where he keeps his boat and saw them and texted me to say if they could do then then why can't I!

My brother's dog Puddles on the dock. (Dirona obviously don't think much of the docking skills of the locals based on the fender deployment!)

Docking.... Irish... probably better safe than sorry.

An amazingly small world. Great pics!

OK, you guys are going to love this, I laughed out loud when I received it!

I have two brothers, Paschal and John, with slips on their dock (and a third with a boat currently over in Scotland).

I just received this from my brother John (with a photo of Dirona's boat card).

"Had a good chat with them this evening. They are plugged into Paschal's electricity. I said, when it runs out, plug into mine!! And welcome to Ireland!!

Menzies mentioned...

I've noticed on many TV programs, travelogues, etc, that it is a feature in the UK. The Brits wear their fenders proudly - like all round the boat - and always down where they do the business. Bitter experience perhaps...too many to pull up...lazy..? Not sure...
Maybe Dirona's set-up is a case of..."well, if they all do it, maybe they know something we don't, so we better as well?"

I don't know, but they are very nicely positioned and level. I was going to say "well-____.....never mind.
