dredger Mersey mariner emergency prop repair
The dredger Mersey mariner underwent some emergency repairs late today. Some old cable has become wrapped round one of her prop shafts damaging a seal. To save docking the vessel she was tied up in the river near the Liverpool Arena at the Albert dock and beached when the tide went out! they were hoping to get the repair finished before the tide came in.
