A welcome change to see the Number 2 dry-dock accommodating large vessels again after an absence of some months, says David Barnicoat.

A collision in the Dover Straits last week saw the Hong Kong registered Panamax bulk carrier Darya Gayatari diverted to Falmouth for repairs to bow damage sustained when she collided with the freighter Paula C.

A team of steelworkers at A&P Falmouth is busy cutting away plates damaged in the collision and removing frames buckled by the impact.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch is conducting an investigation into the accident. The Paula C made her way to Southampton for examination.

Just use a bit of wet and dry and that'll polish right out.
