    Why was the ship high and dry on the river wall? At Brombrough they berth ships in the tidal river and unload on the river wall, and they alwo rest on the bottom too. Ships now have flat keels, not like older ships with round keels.

    This makes port facilities cheaper with no lock gates to maintain.

    I have a feeling that the Mersey Venture was having some repair work to one of its' propellers...I seem to recall one of them was very shiny (maybe new?). The tide was out a very long way at the time.
    It's the only time I've seen a ship at that location, right up against the river wall opposite the Kings dock car park.
