Passing McInroy's Point on Sunday, the coaster SEA EMS was heading for Shieldhall with a cargo - presumably animal feed - loaded in Amsterdam. She is a 2,500 tonne deadweight ship, 82.0 metres in length, and was built in 1996 by the Dutch shipbuilder Scheepswerf Bijlsma at Wartema. Her original name was LADON but was renamed HOLLAND in 2005. A year later, she took her current name. Now flying the Antigua and Barbudan ensign, she is managed by Fehn Bereederung. Passing astern of her is SOUND OF SHUNA, while the tanker BRO DELIVERER is passing Hunter's Quay on her way into Loch Long.
