MAID OF THE LOCH

Post by riverman » Thu Jan 10, 2019 10:21 pm

The Maid was slipped today at Balloch with a good crowd in attendance, unfortunately it was unsuccessful as there was a problem with the carrier cradle and she rolled back down the slipway into the water. She is now back at her original berth. :(

My understanding of the matter is that the problem wasn't with the cradle, it was the cable pulling the cradle that snapped.
The cradle is now lying somewhere on the bed of the loch.

Firstly, pleased to see none of the personnel were injured in the incident -

Secondly, I would assume the Maid of the Loch wanted back to her natural environment.....
