TS Queen Mary's drydocking at Dales Marine's Garvel Dock, Greenock on 6th June, 2019

Above : Above : Queen Mary moved under tow from her Glasgow berth to the Garvel dry dock in Greenock on 6th June 2019 for a two-week stay. This was her first trip down the Clyde since 28th August, 1977. In the photo above, Kenny Whyte catches her from above Port Glasgow, passing the incomplete future Caledonian-MacBrayne car ferry Glen Sannox, moored for fitting out outside Ferguson's yard.

Above : Queen Mary was turned prior to berthing. In the view above by Kenny Whyte the aft section of the ship can be seen. This is where the open viewing gallery on the promenade deck was attended to in dry dock. Other noticeable features are the brown painted captain's cabin forward and stairwell cover aft as well as brown painted window frames on the main deck. The ventilators have also been returned to their traditional colouring.

Above : Queen Mary was towed by tugs Battler and Biter. Battler nudges her into position in her regular spoot at the entrance to Princes Dock
