Noticed this morning next patrol vessel out of the building hall and on the barge.
Tug BRUISER in attendance. No doubt off to KGV shortly.

Something else happening with the Patrol Vessels.
The barge is back in Fairfields Basin and there is a Patrol Vessel ahead of the barge. Unable to see if its on a wheeled trailer or still on the quayside. Suggest its a different one from the movement on Tuesday. Earlier in the week there was one ship with her bow outside the building hall it may be her.
Two others in much earlier stages just visible in the building hall.

Hi Colin,you got me curious so I popped down to have a look.They have brought Trent back to the fitting out bay at Govan,with the barge on the other side.I think they are working at the drydock so maybe they have no where else to put her.Cheers Williemac
