Waverley on Trials

On Thursday morning Waverley left Greenock Custom House Quay to undertake sea trials which involved some work on the boilers to ensure the burners are operating correctly but also to make compass adjustments. She left Custom House Quay at 10am and sailed down Firth to Toward and then made her way back up river to Glasgow where she arrived about 3pm. Joe McKendrick took the following 3 stunning pictures as she headed back up river. In just 4 weeks time she will be leaving the Clyde for her annual visit to the Western Isles.

A Perfect Paddler

Many thanks to Joe for providing the pictures.
