It's been a while since anything has been posted on this topic.A blooming shame Forth Ports nicked the contract for for animal feed.Despite that Louise Bulker came in on Saturday,not the biggest at just under 20,000 tons gross,however beggars can't be choosers.Cheers Williemac

Today's genuine contender for passing through Greenock was Azamara Journey,originally R6 of the defunct Renaissance fleet.Thankfully she appeared bang on schedule and apart from a brief drizzle the weather held.
