Shortly after the barge was secured in Rothesay Dock, the Swedish tanker TÄRNHOLM sailed, and is seen here as she moved out of the dock and into the River Clyde. Despite the strike by Clyde Pilots, one must have been on duty today as there were a few movements on the river which necessitated the presence of one on board. TÄRNHOLM is a sister of other Tärntank Rederi AB ships which have visited the Clyde in the past, although she is a little newer having been completed in 2005. 14,796 tonnes deadweight, this 141.2 metre long tanker was built by Shanghai Edward Shipbuilding Co in China.
