General K. Pulanski

Polish guided missile frigate General K. Pulanski (ex USS Clark) heads back to Faslane 24 April 2008. HMS Walney (?) in the background. [Edit] The commentator is completely correct (thanks!), it is Minna! In my own defence, I didn't even see the boat, but the camera did![/Edit]


Northern Marine's Multicat working in Clyde Marina, Ardrossan 23 April 2008. I cannot believe that they are seriously going to extend the main pontoon to that length! It is also the local gossip that the adjacent tanker berth is to be transformed into more Marina space!
