Grand Princess going doon the Clyde

Hi all,

well today we saw the biggest liner yet in Greenock at the container terminal.

So me and Gary D took a cruise up to see the beast leaving tonight.

Hope the pics work

That's not a liner, it's a block of appartments being floated out to the Costa del Sol!

Nice pics

the A frame is ok but needs nav lights

Also does it have a 420 Yamaha and out drive fitted

Need some 4x4 to tow that though, better put it on a swinging mooring.

Think youd need a few bigfoot monster trucks to haul that to a slip way

It may be ugly but its great to see reknowned ships like that on the Clyde these days , and there are always loads of folk local and this who travel in that line the mile long esplanade to see these ships coming and going.

Cheers Gary, well you know me and the camera,any excuse to get a few snaps. Tony will be livid when he sees them

Dave
