Progress towards Waverley’s return to service has visibly taken a major step forward today with the careful removal of both her funnels by Dales Marine Services, Garvel.

The next stage will be to remove the deck above the boilers and an internal bulkhead to allow the existing boilers and generators to be lifted free.

Note the two exhaust outlets for Waverley’s pair of diesel alternators. These alternators are being replaced by new Caterpillar units with a third, smaller alternator also being added.WEL
