Red Duchess

Coaster Red Duchess outbound for Troon loaded with round timber from Ardrishaig 08 August 2008.

Canopus J

Container vessel Canopus J outbound for Bilbao 08 August 2008. I would swear that her unload/load times at GOT are getting shorter!


Coaster Mornes pays her first visit to Hunterston for some time, (Aasheim was running the route to Manisty in her absence), to pick up a load of South African coal. Poor evening for photography, I'm afraid!

Jaeger Arrow

Cargo vessel Jaeger Arrow outbound for Amsterdam 05 August 2008.

Semper Vigilo

"Survey vessel" Semper Vigilo in Clyde Marina 05 August 2008. I cannot find much information on her, however she looks very similar to the ex Strathclyde Police Launch Semper Vigil II, retired in 1992. Anyone know any more?


Caledonian Macbrayne's Saturn unloading at berth 2, Ardrossan 12:16 04 August 2008. The services between Ardrossan and Arran were delayed due to low (spring) tides, Caledonian Isles should have been in berth 1, loading for departure at 12:30. She did not berth until 12:35!

Coal Pride

Bulk carrier Coal Pride preparing to leave Hunterston, assisted by Ayton Cross and Warrior III, 04 August 2008. A very efficient unloading!

John Paul K

Dutch registered coaster John Paul K. allows FPV Minna to pass 03 August 2008. There is still apparently some dubiety whether the coaster had full clearance to head upsteam!
