Good Evening Kelpie - I think she has her AIS switched off however she may switch it back on when she leaves dry dock, I'm guessing thats the Borgholm Dolphin next to her. I even tried searching the Belfast Telegraph for any information on her movements but no luck there.

Thanks Crawford. Found the details on the harbour's Facebook. Had to get the wife to do the Facebook bit for me.


Cheers,


Michael
