It was a cold, very wet and windy day with the temperature struggling to get past 7 Deg.C. It was a bit warmer by the time I left work at 5.30pm but not by much, at least it had stopped raining by this point.
In the distance the tug Strathglass (IMO 9483657, GT 659, 2008) is preparing to tow a large loaded barge from the Camell Laird's yard to Rosyth. She is being assisted by local tugs Svitzer Bidston and Ashgarth.
Strathglass was a new vessel for me, other new ships seen on the day were the tanker Front Avon ( IMO 9654567, GT 29993, 2013) which was berthed at Tranmere and veteran offshore supply / tug Artemis (IMO 8321591, GT 1987, 1984) which I saw whilst driving along the dock road on my way home.
