Yeoman Bank

2nd April 2013, 06:44
Driving down the A83 to Campbeltown yesterday I noticed a ship drifting just north of the north channel. Looking on the AIS now the Yeoman Bank is at anchor off the Mull of Kintyre (not a usual achorage spot). She was on passage from Portbury Docks to Glensanda Quarry. Anybody know what is going on with her?

I have heard she has a bow thrust problem so cannot berth at Glensanda until it is safely fixed.

Thanks for that information, just thought it was strange because the other day she was lying east/west in the north channel which was so unusual. This site always amazes me, all the knowlegable people on it. I have just checked the AIS and she is still there so must be waiting parts/makers men. As a marine engineer myself my heart goes out to them. It was the Yeoman Bontrup that went on fire alongside at Glensanda in 2010.

The Yeoman Bank has at last sailed from Greenock and is now on passage to Glensanda (ETA 1600hrs), must have been one hell of a beakdown!
