Launch of the ST CATHERINE

Pleased to be able to show you this video clip of the launch of the passenger ferry ST CATHERINE ship No 534 from the Henry Robb (We had reverted back to the original name)
Shipyard on 30th March 1983. This fine ship is still going strong working in the Med, now run by Delcomar and named GB CONTI.
The video clip was sent in by Charlie who was a welder in the yard; he managed to get up one of the cranes just before the launch to record this wee bit of history.
Watch her go into the water here.

Look out for an announcement soon about my new book
Leith-Built Ships Volume 1
