A West Coast Motors coach is arriving in time for the Islay ferry MV Isle of Arran (now a relief boat) coming in.

Fast Rescue Craft exercise on the Islay ferry MV Hebridean Isles


Picture of a ferry tender hanging on a craneI’ve only seen it once but I believe it is a regular practice. This is the Fast Rescue Craft being lifted up after an exercise in West Loch Tarbert by the Islay¬†ferry MV Hebridean Isles.

Update/correction: Originally I had described the boat as a tender, the correct term is Fast Rescue Craft. Thanks to Jim MacLean for the correction.
