During my absence, the regular Arran ferry CALEDONIAN ISLES has been undergoing survey and drydocking at Greenock, in the hands of the Garvel Drydock company. Today, she left the drydock under tow, with Clyde Marine's tugs BATTLER and BITER taking charge for the short journey into the James Watt Dock.

Lying off the entrance to the Garvel Basin was the tug IMPULSE, while BATTLER and BITER lined CALEDONIAN ISLES up with the wet dock entrance.

Once inside the Watt Dock, CALEDONIAN ISLES was berthed on the south wall of the dock, and while there, her port side lifeboats were both lowered. She was later moved to the Garvel berth across the dock, previously occupied by CORUISK.
