Blyth Harbour

Blyth is fast becoming the place to see Offshore vessels, although sometimes they are waiting for work. However I took the opportunity to catch several. Nor Atlantis (formerly Harkand Atlantis) and Nor Da Vinci are sister diving-support ships. Deepsea Worker (formerly Skandi Inspector) is an offshore-support vessel. UP Agate and UP Jasper are supply vessels which have been laid-up for some time. Swordfish is reputed to be tender for the new Aircraft Carrier nearing completion.
