Paying another visit to the Riverside berth at Shieldhall today was the Panamanian-registered wood chip carrier BUENA VISTA, last on the Clyde in March. She was seen approaching the berth with AYTON CROSS made fast foward, and SVITZER MILFORD on her stern. Clyde Marine Services' BRUISER was pushing hard on her port side, against the effects of the fresh south-easterly wind. Unusually, the bulker was berthed facing upriver, as her high freeboard would have made it rather difficult to cant her today.
