Breaking the Boom at Berehaven573 viewsPolyphemus was sent on 1st July 1885 to Berehaven to be tested on the boom at the western end of the harbour. Many felt that this couldn’t be done, but the Polyphemus cut through the boom with ease. This feat led The Cork Examiner to declare the Polyphemus “the most powerful ship in the world”. (The boom made up of steel hawsers five inches thick)
