Nowadays, it’s not too often that the MSC Tugs are required this far up the Manchester Ship Canal.

This week ‘MSC Volant’ assisted the vessel ‘Martin’ passing Mersey Weir, which is located 28 miles from along the Canal.

The two vessels were pictured together on the way back down to Eastham Locks. Lots of people out with cameras 📸
