Clan MacIver (3)


25.9.1958. She had a hole cut in her side during ballast trials to speed up pumping out the bilges

Unfortunately the trim allowed the engine room to fill and she went over on her port side.

Some of the mooring ropes broke and to prevent a total capsize the James Watt Dock sluice gate was opened ( luckily it was low tide outside) and let out water to allow her to rest on her port bilge.

Salvage men worked through the night and capped the hole. She was only two weeks late in completion.
