Carrying a cargo of salt from Kilroot, the self-discharging bulk carrier CLYDENES  was seen as she passed Kempock Point on her way upriver to Glasgow today. Although not a stranger to the upper reaches, she is more usually employed carrying coal from Hunterston to both Kilroot and to Manisty on the Mersey, CLYDNES is now registered at Valetta, the change to the Maltese flag having taken place last autumn.
