Arriving this afternoon, the German coaster LEESWIG was seen as she passed Lunderston Bay heading for the Bravo anchorage, before making her way upriver to Glasgow to discharge. LEESWIG was built on the Volga River at Rybinsk in 1996 as FRIEDA, taking her present name in 2007. Operated by Meerpahl and Meyer, this little ship is an 88.0 metre coaster of 4,515 tonnes deadweight.
