An early start to 2019 with the arrival in Leith of the Fishery Protection Vessel Minna in preparation for a wet dock refit.
The Minna generally works on the West Coast of Scotland out of Greenock carry out fishery protection duties for the authorities. With the changes to the fishing quotas and the new fish dumping regulations she’s likely to be busy when she returns to service later this month.
The refit work consists of some tank work, replacement of some valves and some general repairs.
Elsewhere in our website there are pictures of an earlier Minna berthed outside our workshops, I’m told that vessel had a pock marked funnel fom enemy action received durring the 2nd world war?
