*Waverley Update - Friday 23rd April – Waverley Steams to Dry Dock & appeal reaches £330,000*
PS Waverley left her winter berth in Glasgow shortly before 2pm on Wednesday 21st April under her own power to sail down river to Greenock for her annual dry docking.
After turning at the 'Tail of the Bank' she berthed at Greenock’s Custom House Quay. Given that news of Waverley’s first move of the year spread quickly, some people gathered to see the ship arrive.
During this dry docking the bow will be repaired, several paddles will be replaced, the hull will be painted, some steel will be replaced in the port paddle box and a full survey of the hull undertaken.
Dry docking Waverley is the single largest expense of the winter refit and it is being funded thanks to those who have continued to support the ship.
The Covid-19 Relief Appeal has now reached £330,000. Waverley Excursions are deeply grateful to everyone that has donated.
