Following an unexpected mechanical breakdown, whilst on the way to Castletownbere for its 6 monthly haul-out, Baltimore Tamar “Alan Massey” has been placed off service for an extended period. A replacement engine needs to be fitted. A relief boat was allocated and a passage crew travelled to Dun Laoghaire on Saturday 15th November to bring her back over the weekend. If you’re wondering why she looks different – it’s a Trent.

Training exercises were run from Monday to Wednesday by Sean O’Farrell and Stuart Russell of Courtmacsherry LB to ensure the crew were conversant with the different systems. It is unclear how long she will be at station but it is hoped that a Relief Tamar will become available soon.
