On Tuesday, under their own power, the laid-up container ships MAERSK MAINE and MAERSK MARYLAND both moved from the shelter of the Great Harbour to the Tail of the Bank. Both ships are due to return to service shortly, and will undergo drydocking in Portugal before picking up service running in the Mediterranean. Having already received bunkers from the coastal tanker KEEWHIT, MAERSK MAINE was seen as she was about to take on fresh water from Serco's Greenock-based water barge SD WATERMAN.
