Not looking at her best with streaked paintwork on her sides, the Spliethoff cargo ship SAIMAAGRACHT was seen passing the Cloch as she made her way downfirth from Greenock after, I believe, her first visit to the Clyde. One of the second batch of four ships built at the New Szczecin Shipyard in Poland for the company, SAIMAAGRACHT entered service in March 2005. She is 23,660 tonnes deadweight and 185.4 metres long. She was heading from Greenock across the Atlantic to Baltimore.
