No problem Bob, its a nice shot.

To be honest i cant see the whole project taking off at all. Has she moved at all from her moorings?

They want to run a service which takes 2hours from woolwich to london bridge. Thames clippers do it in no time. Its just crazy

Thanks Ben. I've seen her a couple of times at Woolwich and wondered what she was. Your right, she does look better befoer conversion.

Built as Olandsund in 1960, sold on to Western Ferries and renamed Sound of Scarba. Renamed Soond in order to pass the name on to a newbuild Sound of Scarba. Conversion works carried out on the Clyde, then the vessel was towed to the Thames.
