The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Ships and Harbours
No: 13199   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 2006   Manufacturer: Swan Hunter, United Kingdom   Country: United Kingdom

New RFA heading under Erskine Bridge on the Clyde in July 2006 under tow from the Tyne for completion by BAe Systems in Glasgow.
She was built by Swan Hunter but because of severe delays was brought to the Clyde to be finished where two sisters MOUNTS and CARDIGAN BAYS had already been built. This effectively ended shipbuilding on Tyneside.
LARGS BAY was successfully completed earlier by Swan Hunter.
