Pictured passing Inverkip this evening on her way to Ellesmere is the small coaster PAMIR, which had arrived at Glasgow late yesterday. She was built in Slovakia on the River Danube by Slovenske Lodenice Komarno in 1994 for German owners, and she is operated by Wessels Rederei GmbH of Haren. Measuring 88.46 metres in length, her gross tonnage is 2,061 tons while her deadweight is 3,002 tonnes. Like many ships of her size, her wheelhouse is capable of being lowered hydraulically, to enable her to pass under river bridges.
