Hello again-If you go to original size on my pic taken from Clyde Clipper you will see that it's all flat plates welded together like a rubik cube-One story was It was a temp. job to get her in the water on time

Wonder why she needs a new bow? She has not even been out on sea trials yet.
Jim McQuarrie on Apr 28, 2018 14:28 (12 months ago)
She's going into dry dock-(Don't know which)for a new bulbous bow-Already made I believe

Hah hah! 😂 well now Jim it did not take you long to spot this photograph, I was actually standing at position 055º57'36 north - 004º39'16 west, and that is the parking spot right in front of Cardross Railway Station on the north bank. I use a Sony and I was quite pleased at how the shot turned out. I didn't have a tripod with me and used a mono pod instead. I'm sure CalMac will give the lady a fresh coat of paint before they put her into service. She has spent all winter on the river and the white is no longer as pristine as it was when you took your photographs last year.
