Waverley departs Custom House Quay for a full day of sea trials.Allan Smith
On Thursday 13th August 2020 Waverley moved under her own steam for the first time since her boiler refit.
Waverley departed Custom House Quay, Greenock at 10am for a day of sea trials, returning nearly seven hours later at 4.50pm. Her trials took her south as far as Largs with her speed touching 15 knots on several occasions.
