Lysblink Seaways - Final Journey

The container ship 'Lysblink Seaways' that recently ran aground near Ardnamurchan on the west coast of Scotland, moved from Inchgreen Dry Dock across to Roseneath today.

She had come to Greenock under tow for repairs to be carried out, but these have proven to be too expensive and sadly she is beyond economical repair.

She will be dismantled by DRB Marine in Roseneath.

Svitzer tugs 'Anglegarth' and 'Ayton Cross' assisted in the move and the 'Lysblink Seaways' had no main engines, but just generators running.
