|S D RELIABLE (2009- Ship-handling and coastal tug of Serco Denholm Marine Services, London)||
Tug S D RELIABLE and barge S D 1710 U pass Custom House Quay, Greenock
It was a thoroughly unpleasant day to take photographs.
Thick overcast sky, continual heavy rain with fierce
squalls and poor visibility.
“Teeming down” or “pouring down” as they
say in the west of Scotland.
At 1414 hours the Serco Denholm tug S D RELIABLE left
Great Harbour, Greenock with the unmanned fuel barge
S D 1710 U fast alongside. It’s not known where they
were bound. Possibly the Royal Navy base at Faslane
in the Gare Loch or the NATO fuelling facility at
Loch Striven. Who knows ?
1434 hours and the pair passed Custom House Quay,
Greenock. The tug was seen to be moving astern on
In the last image just above the tug's bow is
a small vessel named TONKA.
You may be surprised where it has been.
