Three divers survey damage to ferry hull
A team of three divers from Lochs Diving Services arrived in Lochmaddy on Sep 26 to assess the damage to the "Hebrides". Due to a technical failure the ferry had overshot its berth at speed, It hit a rocky outcrop and in steering off the rocks and destroyed the top end of a pontoon system. CalMac’s teams were continuing to work directly with passengers affected in order to find the best solutions for them. The pontoons were jumbled, upturned and leaking polystyrene fragments into the tide. The marina was closed at the moment for health and safety reasons until people have looked at it. A team from CalMac and Gael Force, the engineers who installed the pontoons, were to meet with CNM for an in depth assessment of the damage. The "Lord of the Isles" undertook two return sailings on the Lochboisdale, South Uist to Mallaig route, to ease some of the disruption. An additional return sailing was also added to the Berneray to Leverburgh, Isle of Harris route.
