PS WAVERLEY 2020 - return to service...

Post by _on_the_clyde_ » Tue Jan 14, 2020 7:41 pm

The old lady was towed to Greenock today from up river for start of repair works at the Garvel Clyde facility. For some background reading/photos I saw this: https://www.paddlesteamers.org/news/nat ... -and-2020/

https://www.waverleyexcursions.co.uk/sa ... er-appeal/ for the general update on the funding appeal which reached the target of £2.3M.

Hopefully will see her steaming again by mid 2020 :clap:

Many thanks for the update _on_the_clyde_......

Very pleased to see PS WAVERLEY has been moved down to Garvel Dry Docks – indicates a forward move to get the boilers replaced, and just as pleased to see the targeted fundraising figure has been achieved.

Look forward to seeing her ploughing the waves of the Clyde and its’ estuary later this year – hopefully get a sail on her then…..?
