I was surprised to find that I had never included one of the "Jigsaw" ships as a pic of the day so here is the Caledonian Vanguard in Aberdeen's Tidal Basin in 2006. Most of the photos I have show the davits empty but this one shows one of the ARRCs hanging there. I have written elsewhere on this site about the development and the eventual departure of these craft, when finally the ships were turned into straight platform ships and the ARRCs were put up for sale, later purchased so I have been told by the UK Border Force. I good use for them i should think.

Photo taken in August 2006 and posted here on 1st October 2018.
