Another cargo of animal feed arrived this morning aboard the bulk carrier PRINCESSA V, seen here passing Greenock about to enter the main river channel. She was built in 1986 at the Alexandria Shipyard in Egypt, being completed as QENA for the Egyptian Navigation Co. With a deadweight of 38,500 tonnes, she is 200 metre overall. Her last port was Belfast, which she left on Thursday afternoon. However, her arrival was delayed until today due to the attrocious weather which has been affecting the area over the past couple of days - take a look at her movements on Friday. PRINCESSA V has been managed by a Greek company, Pendulum Shipmanagement Inc since March 2007, when she was given her current name and swapped the Egyptian flag for the Panamanian one.

I see that you met my bollard. Took me 20 minutes to roll it into place. It's lasted a few year now. Too heavy for the neds to toss over the fence. Just missed you John. Was on Daddy duty so couldn't hang around for her late arrival.
Keep up the good work.
