WAVERLEY in dock

The steamer WAVERLEY berthed in the James Watt Dock at the Garvel repair yard after her afternoon cruise to Ailsa Craig had been substituted for one to Loch Long because of the weather. With a day off service scheduled for Monday, the opportunity was taken to have the Garvel Drydock repair the belting on her starboard paddlebox after it sustained some damage earlier in the season. Lying astern of her, CalMac's CLANSMAN remains off service while awaiting parts for her starboard main engine after suffering from a major breakdown some weeks before.
