UKD Bluefin

Postby Western Quay King » Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:51 pm

UKD Bluefin makes a slow entry into the Port of Tyne, North East England on 5th August 2012, headed for dry docking at A&P#s Hebburn Yard to have damage to her midships surveyed and repaired. Photographed from Western Quay, North Shields.

The damage to her plates had been occasioned at Immingham Dock on 1st August 2012 in a collision with the Russian registered cargo ship Alexander Tvardovskiy, and the Barbados registered cargo ship Wilson Haw.

She had slowly made her way to the Tyne, making 5 knots and showed evidence of a temporary patch to her midships.

Steve,
We have to let you have a wee bit of excitement on the devil's side now and again. I see she was down to go straight into the dock but they couldn't get the gate down so had to wait until this morning.
