On a previous visit to the river, STADIONGRACHT was pictured discharging cargo in King George V Dock, but today she was seen at the more common berth for Spliethoff ships, Greenock's Ocean Terminal. The large doors which cover the cargo-loading elevators can be seen in the open position behind her forward crane. Also visible on deck, well wrapped to protect it against the ravages of the North Atlantic in wintertime, is a yacht hull. STADIONGRACHT sailed this evening for Jacksonville, where she is due to arrive on 24 November.
