Repairs to her damaged bow having been completed during the past few weeks at King George V Dock, the Norwegian-flagged ship MORNES was seen passing Gourock on a blustery day as she made her way back down the Clyde to Hunterston, where she would resume her usual duties of carrying cargoes of coal to Northern Ireland. As mentioned in the previous posting about this ship, a preliminary examination into the incident which led to her visit to Glasgow was conducted by the MAIB - the results of that examination can be read here.
