Well it seems the short lay-ups may have been seasonal and Sand Her on has just delivered at Shoreham.
Stevie, any idea who has bought Sand Weaver?

Tony, apologies as I do often forget about Welsh Piper doing a great job in the Bristol Channel area.

Cheers Stevie, it will be a shame to see her go but I guess she will work to the very end of her service down that way.

Cheers Stevie for the update, it's a shame she May be going so far away. And to a country where so many boats end their life beached.

Sand Weaver

Sand Weaver left Malta today , next call Suez due 16th June. She seems to be running well all things considered. Does anybody know if the Sand Harrier has been sold yet or any rumours about her future. I think she is still laid up in Swansea.

Sand Harrier

Looks like the Sand Harrier is re-entering service as it appears they are looking for certain officer ranks to join her later in the month. I wonder if there is an increased demand for aggregates right now or is she to be delivered to new owners.

It looks as though Sand Harrier has had a reprieve as she takes over duties on the south coast while Sand Heron is at A & P on the Tees.
