Whilst it is possible to plan a lot of ship photography in advance and be in the right place at the right time, occasionally one can get really lucky and capture an unexpected happening.
Trinity House had issued a Notice to Mariners but these are not things one often reads!
Thus on Thursday July 24 whilst approaching the entrance to Queen's Channel on board MANANNAN bound for Douglas THV PATRICIA could be seen towing away the Bar Light float showing Swansea as her destination where she arrived on Friday. An illuminated buoy has been left as a temporary replacement.
The liberal coating of guano on the Bar Lightfloat is clearly an indication that a refit is necessary!
