Sound Of Seil (Ferry) 2013
Of particular interest was the ferry Sound of Seil which is a new build spotted on the slipway at Cammell Laird, after the incoming tide lifted her off her cradle she was moved into the main basin.
I am back in Liverpool on Monday so hopefully a few new ships will arrive over the weekend.
These were located both on sailing ships where they were used for lifting sails and heavy spars, transferring cargo and other similar activities as well as on shore to move large ships in and out of the docks by hand.
Bearing in mind its location near to a historic but now sealed entrance into the dock system from the River Mersey I suspect the latter.
