Royal Fleet Auxiliary Fort Austin moored off Greenock 6 January 2008. First time I have ever seen "battleship grey" actually reflect light, I think!
Peel Port's Mersey Mammoth, "The largest sea-going self propelled crane on the UK West Coast" passing Ardmaleish Boatyard en route to Rothsay Pier 24 January 2008. She was employed in the removal of the old side loading linkspan at Rothesay.
Warrior III and Ayton Cross (Kindeace (centre) was left behind) leave James Watt Dock, Greenock, to play catch up with Svitzer Mallaig (already running) en route to dock bulk carrier Jin He at Hunterston 22 January 2008.
Regular visitor Mornes docks at Hunterson 4 March 2008. Norwegian registered Mornes frequently ships coal from Hunterston to Kilroot Power Station in Northern Ireland on contract. The docking manoeuvres are very impressive (mostly astern!).
Crew of Clydeport's Torch, which is used to maintain navigational aids in Clydeport's domain, work on a buoy in Ardrossan Harbour 4 March 2008. Lovely weather. It would appear that Torch is operating out of Largs Yacht Haven for the duration.
