OSD Greenock is on the West coast of Scotland, on the South Bank of the River Clyde estuary (Firth of Clyde).

The Blackwater lay-up mooring buoys and anchorage are located over 500 miles away, on the East coast of England. The River Blackwater runs into the Thames estuary, on the Essex (North) shore. The advantage of the Blackwater was that it was handy for the port of London yet offered good shelter and low costs.
