Recce

In a bid to make life handier for you lot, we dropped a man into Dun Laoghaire over the weekend - thanks donegaldan!

This is his story:

There is ample space for the fleet. We're working on the office for some some of group arrangement. Fuel (both flavours) on the water, 24/7.

Pic 2: Welcoming Committee Boat for the Black Shadows
Pic 3: Sanitation Barge (so the BS Gang can wash off the talc together )
Pic 4: Google Earth - Pontoon and Hotel circled.

He also had a (very long) walk out the South Wall to Poolbeg Lighthouse. Clearly, careful liaison with the Port Authority will be required for the "Voyage past the Buoyage" run on the Sunday. However, I'm assured it's no biggie.

Pic 2: Poolbeg Lighthouse (entrance to Liffey)
Pic 3: Big Trawler taking up the entire channel
Pic 4: City Centre looking East - practical upper limits.

I dunno - time was we had very strict regulations regarding the importation of "impure latex products" from the UK. Back in those days the boats would have been boarded by the Legion of Mary and a tiny prick put in each Black Shadow...

...to give the "wee fellas" a daycint chance
