Waverley

Headed for Yarmouth for lunch on Saturday and spotted the paddle steamer Waverley moored up on the Yarmouth pier. Lot's of people boarding and I understand she is cruising between Portsmouth and Yarmouth.

Cruising the South Coast from 7th till 20th September

She looks stunning

Quite a few vids on my YouTube channel with her in it. Rare to be on clyde and you don't see it, it goes at a fair lick for an old girl. I guess it is 16-18 knots range.

Waverley

She looks stunning:thumbs

She does indeed

And she’ll approach piers faster than most of us would do in our own RIB’s

She looks great, been on the water cruising along side her a few times, I was very impressed with her speed and acceleration. If anyone is on the water with her do bear in mind she is very quick for a passenger boat you would be surprised, so be careful not to get in her way.

I have a vid somewhere will hunt it out and post.

Sure is a lovely example of the Magestic Old Days....Built on the Clyde.
I've seen Her everywhere from the South Coast... Bristol Chanell...to the West Coast of Scotland must of covered many many thousands of Miles in Her Time!! and she never fails to impress!

In the days Past of very Strict Anti Drinking legislation on the Sabbath in Scotland .....the Steamer fleet in Scotland was considerable,and VERY popular at weekends!.... the Maritime lack of Licensing Laws having quite a lot to do with it
....The term getting "Steamed up" was coined as a direct consequence!..So here's to the Old Girl
