On a Rescue Mission?

Also seen on Friday morning was the unusual sight of both Serco salvage and moorings ships SD SALMAID and SD SALMOOR heading down the Clyde together. Their departure together was because their presence was required following an embarrassing incident off the island of Skye, where the Royal Navy's latest submarine had run aground in shallow water during a boat transfer operation near to the Skye Bridge. Fortunately, HMS ASTUTE was refloated later in the day at high tide.
