Loading scrap metal at Diesel Wharf, the coaster COASTAL WAVE was a common visitor to Greenock a few years ago when employed on a container service between the Clyde and the Irish sea ports such as Dublin and Liverpool. Built in 1983 by Sietas as CRAIGANTLET, she later became NEPTUNUS then PELLWORM, before joining the Coastal Container service as COASTAL WAVE in 1998. Now registered at Dundalk, and owned by Lee Shipping, she has a deadweight of 1,874 tonnes and is 78.0 metres in length.
