Arriving light from Cardiff, Fisher's Liberian-flagged tanker CHARTSMAN was seen passing the Cowal Buoy as she made her way towards Loch Long and on to Finnart to backload a cargo for, of all places, Grangemouth, from which the cargo had just been pumped! Such movements often occur after part of the refining plant at Grangemouth has been shut down for maintenance, and the products are used to re-start the refining processes. CHARTSMAN is one of four Malaysian built ships in the company's fleet and she joined Fisher's in 1993. She has a deadweight of 6,396 tonnes.
