Nice pics Paul, thanks for posting.

Slightly disconcerting to see her being “tug-assisted” – remembering last year she made her own way down to Garvel, achieving 13.5 knots…

Nevertheless, I wish her all the best for 2019.

Just going down to JWD for boiler maintenance and an MOT Allan before the start of the season. Unfortunately she will not be calling at Helensburgh this season due to neglected maintenance of the pier by Argyll & Bute council, this is an ongoing issue and there will be a meeting at the pier on Sat.20th. April at 11.00am. There is a lot of angry people in Helensburgh at the moment!

Thanks for the info Riverman - feel a bit better.

However, no calls to Helensburgh "this season" is a long time - I share your anguish.

There will be a coach connection with Kilcreggan where there will be additional calls, however this is certainly a poor substitute for calls at Helensburgh.

Good for local business in Kilcreggan but may cause parking congestion as it is fairly limited at present.
