CANOPUS J inbound

A regular Friday visitor to the river is CANOPUS J, seen this morning passing McInroy's Point as Western Ferries' SOUND OF SCARBA heads back to Hunter's Quay. CANOPUS J, which has been running on the MacAndrews container service from Liverpool and Greenock to Bilbao for the past six months, was built in 2004. She is 139.88 metres in length, has a deadweight of 9,193 tonnes and can carry up to 750 TEU containers.
