    Never mind the gps what about the anchor.  Ocean Gem looks big alongside and I note Shemaron looks to have settled at the stern. Oh yes Chris...baby grandson today Oscar Benjamin a good Tarbert name!!!
    congratulations brian, you dont look old enough to be a grandad, or then again maybe you do, Shemaron looks a bit lost next to all those big boats maybe bit lower at back with fullish tanks tip of rudder just breaking surface

    the french built boat beside two boys is up for sale on another site.   www.clydeboatyard.co.uk/
    Ocean Gem was lifted out of the water last week,
    it needs some repair on a couple of planks where it was rubbing on a quay or ladder for a while but otherwise is in good condition i believe it is owned by the yard and is for sale
    the machine that lifted the boat can register the weight Ocean Gem was 55tons Shemaron was 32 , quite a difference
