MV Glen Sanox

Glen Sanox,the new Caledonian MacBrayne ferry being built at Ferguson's ship yard in Port Glasgow.
The ship is now about fourteen months late,the shipyard and ferry operator have been accusing each other for the delays, Ferguson's claim design changes are to blame.
The ship on the slipway is the second ferry for CalMac, same design as the first minus the mistakes made in building the Glenn Sanox hopefully,its already two years late.
