'Cape Elise' - Damaged Bulk Carrier

The 'Cape Elise' was brought up from Hunterston on Thursday evening in preparation for her move to the Inchgreen Repair Quay facility today.

She suffered damage when struck by a huge wave in the Atlantic and received assistance from tugs to get her to Hunterston to discharge her cargo prior to coming to Greenock.

She is expected to be in for repair for about three weeks.

While waiting on her move I got a few shots of the SD Eva.
