  I have enclosed some photos of the James Watt Dock I took back in September 2018.

  The photos show tug boats BRUISER and BATTLER bringing the

ISLE OF ARRAN RoRo ferry out of the dock.  The ISLE OF ARRAN

ferry had been at Dale's for repair to her engines which had been given

her problems all season.


Also managed to capture the cruise liner REGAL PRNCESS as she

was berthed at Ocean Terminal, Greenock.


The first photo shows tug boat BRUISER in the James Watt Dock ready

to take the ferry out of dock.

  The second photo shows BATTLER, ISLE OF ARRAN RoRo and

BRUISER ready to move out of the dock.

  Third photo shows BATTLER leaving the dock.

Fourth photo shows ISLE OF ARRAN and BRUISER moving out of dock.

 Fifth photo shows ISLE OF ARRAN and BRUISER out of the dock.

 Sixth photo shows BRUISER and ISLE OF ARRAN as the tugs began

to swing the ferry round
