Evening All! Well yesterday saw the launch of the newest Caledonian MacBrayne ferry, the Glen Sannox (FMEL Hull 801) from Fergusons Shipyard on the River Clyde. This is a LNG ferry which when finished, will operate the Ardrossan-Brodick route. Sadly, the weather was somewhat... grey and wet. She is still not entirely finished, with a lot of superstructure to be added (for anyone interested, here is what she will look like: http://www.cmassets.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/16001_PHOTO_ARRIVING.jpg). She should be in service sometime late 2018/2019. Pre-launch on the slipway: Waiting to go: The big splash: Moving onto the fit-out berth
