In Dry Dock 2005 - 1

Report by Jon Davis

On the 29th March 2005, The Balmoral was moved from her winter berth at Bristol to Sharpness, the ship tied up in Sharpness dock at Midnight that night, the crew stayed aboard the ship that night then the ship was dry docked the following morning.
Having driven to Sharpness to collect Captain Luke Davis (my brother) on the 30th March, I took these  pictures. Balmoral entered the dock at 8am on the morning of the 30th. While these pictures were being taken, the dry dock was being pumped out.


Apologies for the quality of the picture below, this was due to the appalling weather conditions at the dock side that morning.
