Caledonian MacBrayne’s MV Loch Seaforth was ‘not under command’ for over an hour this afternoon. I have seen this designation only on vessels that were abandoned or hard aground – most recently with the Priscilla on the Pentland Skerries. To see a fully laden passenger #ferry in that state is extremely serious. I’m glad they were able to get her underway again, and I’m equally glad that time is being taken to ascertain the Loch Seaforth is fit for service. #safetyatsea
