Afeckengain...! About 3 years ago she did a similar thing. HiD and I were going to do a short trip on the Waverley and she crashed a pier 3 days before we were supposed to go on her. Repairs this time around will not be cheap.
She has/had a distinct sound as she came upstream or downstream. Isaw her a few times, sometimes under full steam, sometimes when she was berthing in Grrenock.
