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.

HMAS OTAMA

Australian Oberon Class submarine on trials at Greenock in 1978. She was built by Scotts' and her career lasted until 2000 when she was decommissioned and was to become a tourist attraction in Australia.
However this fell through and she had the dubious honour of being offered for sale on EBay. I don't know what the eventual outcome for her has been.
The tug just getting into the picture is Clyde Shipping's FLYING FULMAR built by Ryton Marine on Tyneside in 1974 and now sailing as ALICE NERO having been sold in 1992.
