Busy & Stormy Night on the Clyde

Off to a bad start as the Massdam was delayed in sailing - coach carrying passengers was delayed in traffic

Weather was much better than expected - and forecast - at this stage

Here she is with the Tahitian Princess - docked at the Greenock Ocean terminal
Tahitian Princess sailed later

The tugs - Battler & Svitzer Mallaig assist in canting the Maasdam before she departs the Clyde - heading up the West Coast

Svitzer Mallaig battles past the Massdam on her way to Hunterston for another job
The weather as you can see was now deteriorating

Hairy weather sees these two pass at fairly close quarters
'Battler' - tug in the background - worked very hard that night as she headed to Hunterston, then returned for a job at Finnart Oil Terminal

More images are available at - - and are also better resolution.
