With the Svitzer tugs WARRIOR III and SVITZER MALLAIG effectively trapped in the upper reaches of the river, together with three commercial vessels, the coaster BOISTEROUS, the bulk carrier RED JASMINE and the tanker ASTRAL in Rothesay Dock, the assistance of three of Serco Denholm's tugs was enlisted today to sail the bulk carrier DURA from Hunterston. SD-DEXTEROUS, which has only in the past few days received the prefix to her original name, was seen this afternoon heading for Hunterston from her base in the Gare Loch.
