Did they ever build a boat that successfully completed it's maiden voyage? Or is this a one shot and your done kind of ship building facility.

Seriously. Thanks for the tour. I work at a Navy Shipyard on this side of the pond.

Great shot! I wanted to visit Belfast when we were there but we were told at the airport in Dublin that it wasn't safe to travel there at the moment.

We were also told by one of our hosts in Galway not to go out at night in Limerick because we might be stabbed. I have no idea what he was on about.
