Cheers Peter, I knew it was a fuel depot, but wondered if it was dealing with other stuff.

I like the funky looking escape pod. Are we allowed three eyes on a found face? :)

It seems that the Glen Lee is going to be refurbished andon Sat the 7th and Sunday the 9th of August from 10am - 5pm there is going to be a "Sail Away Weekend" after which the Glen Lee will be sailed down the Clyde to drydock to be refurbished. It will be back for ythe Christmas Fair on the 27th & 28th of November and will be moved to a new mooring next to the Riverside Museum. Apparently there will be Powerboat rides, Fairground Rides, Face Painting, Living History Team, Rasio Controkked Boats, Food Stalls, Live Music & a Sea Creature Handeling Pool. Entry is Free. I found the leaflet for this in My local Paper shop but haven't seen it anywhere else.

A few pictures from todays ship launch at BAE Govan - the last of the type 45 destroyers HMS Duncan. A fair crowd turned up to watch what might be the last launch?
