Odyssey Arena now stands on this quay and is a huge success. No doubt the basin will become a marina. Regards, Alan.

Hello Alan yes a fine photo, though I prefer her with the Kelly funnel, it seems she's recently renamed here, for all the change I see is the silver band on her funnel.

Stevie Clarke's had white masts and black hatch coamings.

Re the Basin , is it not half filled in (reclaimed) now?
regards Kenny.

Only a narrow part of the south side has been filled in. Its a mass of cranes in that area and two or three buildings are beginning to take shape. Regards, Alan.

Fred, Sorry to hear about Bill. I didn't know him but one of the tug skippers knew him well. Regards, Alan.
