Deeply laden with a cargo of aggregate from Glensanda, the bulk carrier YEOMAN BANK was seen as she approached the Warden Bank with the two Wemyss Bay-Rothesay CalMac ferries in the background. YEOMAN BANK was built in 1982 as SALMONPOOL for Ropner Shipping, a company that had its roots in the north-east of England. Following conversion to become self-discharging a number of years ago, she has been operated by Foster Yeoman, now part of the the Aggregate Industries Group.
