PS Waverely

The last seagoing paddle steamer in the world, P.S.Waverley always holds a special place in my heart. I have fond memories as far back as the 60’s of day trips “Doon the Watter” on her and its always a pleasure to see her.

So you can imagine my delight when invited to film her at sea by a good friend and his companion..a professional camera man.

Here is the video I made depicting my perspective of this lovely old lady

Hope you enjoy it and thanks for watching

What a great video of the old lady and what a terrific opportunity for you!
The quality of filming really shows her off from a different viewpoint, and looks amazing on the 55Ē tv.

Your videos just keep getting better, and I fully understand and appreciate the work you put into them for us mere mortals to watch

Think Iím getting a serious man crush

Superb video Donny I really enjoyed watching it.

Hope I'm lucky enough to catch a glimpse of her again when we are up in Oban.

Lovely video Donny. A guy called Steve Marsh on YT did a video on Waverley recently. I also seem to remember that she came to Yarmouth, IOW a few years ago but I missed seeing her. A truly beautiful ship.

Great video Donny. No experience of the Waverely but love the way it moves through the water with that sharp entry... and love the paddle sounds.
