What kind of shoreside facilities do they have now at Troon, or is the dock perhaps only used for antifouling?

Stupid question here but who runs this dock? I know Garvel were sniffing around it a while ago - is it them?

Yes - a Garvel-managed business now. They bring labour and equipment in by road and they appear to be able to offer refit and overhaul capabilities together with hull/drydock classes of work. Not aware of any shoreside facilities any longer, I think everything was done away with when the last Yard operator's (English Midlands Cathelco Group) pulled out.

For example, for pumping out the drydock it is now the practice to use portable submersible pumps. (Presumably the old installed pumping equipment and their motors were removed and disposed of for scrap)
