BF803 Carina stuck in the entrance to Kinlochberie Harbour]A bit of drama down at the harbour this lunchtime when the fishing boat Carina ran aground when coming in to the harbour.

Althought the tide wasn't especially low she managed to snag herself on the rocky shelf on the harbour approach.

Despite swift assistance from local boat the Nimrod she couldn't be freed for a couple of hours when the tide has risen sufficiently.

No reports of damage and no injuries so all's well that ends well.

More harbour news, and the new pontoon moorings have finally been completed, after they were taken apart, turned around, and bolted back together!

Resident boats were quick to colonise with Kipper being first to tie-up.

Since this photo was taken two more boats have taken up residence.

Moorings on the outside of the pontoons are reserved for visiting boats only.
