Sold by the Ministry of Defence several years ago, the former Fleet Tender ABERDOVEY spends most of her time lying at at mooring at Garelochhead. She was seen today, however, leaving the Holy Loch and crossing the mouth of Loch Long. ABERDOVEY, built in 1963 by Isaac Pimblott & Sons at the Weaver Shipyard at Northwich, was latterly used as a Sea Cadet Corps training ship based at Portsmouth, and is 79 feet long.
