Black Rover departs Fountain Lake Jetty 3 (FLJ3) Portsmouth Dockyard. Destination demolition in Aliaga. Nothing new, loadsa RN and RFA ships final days were terminated there. 18 day haul with all the ports to port. Could even stop off in Portugal where older sister Blue still serves as Bérrio.

Under tow of Tug / Support vessel Amber II (ex Camber) of 975 grt, built 2007, IMO 9425423.

Sister Gold Rover will be shifted to FLJ3 from W harbour trots tomorrow 12th with departure in the wake of Black Rover on Tuesday 13th at 1605 with tug Opal IMO 9489479 in charge.

Swan Hunter built all 5 Rover class in 2 groups, Green, Grey and Blue followed by Gold and Black.
Swan Hunter did not build any of 6 WW2 Ranger class which also had a Brown with Grey spelt Gray. Decisions.
Thats all folks. Sean.
