'Ben My Chree' - Docked at Inchgreen Dry Dock in Greenock

An Isle of Man ferry arrived on the Clyde for repairs tonight.

She entered the Inchgreen dry dock at 23:33 - straight in with no problems or hitches. I was very impressed.

 Owned by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company she suffered damage to one of her stabilising fins during recent bad weather.

We expect her to leave sometime on Monday.

The last Steam Packet vessel to dry dock on the Clyde was 'Peveril' in the Garvel -  January 1997
