Coasters at Anchor

Two coasters arrived at the 'Bravo' anchorage on Sunday afternoon, and were seen as they both awaited passage upriver to Glasgow. On the left, Faversham Ships' NORDSTRAND was bringing a cargo for BAE Scotstoun, now renamed BVT Surface Fleet Ltd to reflect the joint venture between BAE and Vospers for the construction of the new aircraft carriers to be built for the Royal Navy. The ship on the right was JOHN-PAUL K., a member of the Alstership fleet which has also been seen on the river recently. She was due to move upriver for a cargo of scrap metal.
