Daring Launch



Just two weeks to launch and it still looks a bit chaotic.
1 February 2006 its launch day from the Scotstoun yard on the Clyde.
Slowly the tugs start to arrive.
















The Marines put on a display for the public.











The tugs take up their final position,waiting for the pomp and ceremony in the shed to finish.












The tugs waste no time and move in quickly to secure her.













Collecting the debris from the launch.



















Daring makes her way to KGV dock to be manoeuvred so she can make the short journey to wet dock were she will remain for a few years while being fitted out.

















The bulker Toro let out a sharp blast of her horn as Daring past.















The marines escort Daring,security was indeed very tight with marines hiding in the bushes!
