Coaster Clydenes approaching Hunterston from the North following repairs at James Watt Dock 12 September 2008. An unusual course for her!
SD Omagh inbound with an (as yet unknown?) Severn Class RNLI lifeboat on trials 10 September 2008. The lifeboat spent some hours "motoring" around!
The "Vikings" appeared at Largs 06 September 2008. No wonder the RIB was in attendance, due to the available freeboard of this particular "longship". Methinks if this is an authentic copy, the Vikings could never have left a Fjord without swamping!
Bulk carrier Seapowet (albeit the ITU Database insists she is Coral) replaced Mathilde at Hunterston overnight 08 September 2008.
Coaster Alholmen, photographed (07 September 2008) on a very overcast day at Campbeltown's New Quay is a 13.17 single hull cargo vessel of 2580 gross tonnage. She was built by Nieuwe Noord at Groningen in the Netherlands in 1984 and is registered at Jacokbstad in Finland. She is loading a cargo of round timber for Norway.
Argyll Workboats' Seahorse II lying at Campbeltown 07 September 2008. She is once again employed in supporting Daring's final sea trials.
One vessel, two funnels, or two vessels? SD Impulse and SD Impetus hang together awaiting the arrival of Mathilde 03 September 2008.
Pictured berthing this morning at the Campbeltown ro-ro terminal is the 27m RV Alba na Mara which, it is understood, was built by MacDuff Shipyards in 2006 (?) for Fisheries Research Services, better known as the Marine Laboratory, Aberdeen.
