Another coaster waiting her turn to head upriver today was SWEDICA HAV, managed by Hav Ship Management AS, a Norwegian company, but registered at Nassau in the Bahamas. A typical low air draft coaster fitted with a hydraulic bridge which can be lowered, she was built in 1986 as JAN MEEDER by Hugo Peters Schiffswerf at Weselsfleth on the River Elbe in Germany. She is 2,283 tonnes deadweight, and has an overall length of 82.45 metres. In 1997, she was renamed SEA WESER, and in 2001, OPHIR. She took her present name in 2006.

I watched her followed by Costal Wave and then Torch come up the Clyde late afternoon.

Better day for pictures.

When the weather is fine, we don't realise how photogenic our background of water, hills and sky can be when compared to photos seen of other areas, where the background is often cluttered with cranes, other vessels or industrial building backdrops.
