Some local ferry news

A couple of brief news items about CalMac ferries on the Clyde . . .

The usual Lochranza-Claonaig ferry LOCH TARBERT is currently at Gourock pier for some repairs. Her duties were taken over on Monday morning by LOCH BHRUSDA (shown here lying at Fairlie Quay) making her first appearance on the thirty-minute crossing.

Gourock-Dunoon ferry JUPITER suffered from technical problems today, and was relieved for most of the afternoon by ALI CAT, the chartered passenger-only catamaran normally just used for the extra morning and evening relief sailings between Gourock and Dunoon. JUPITER resumed service with the 1820 sailing from Gourock.
