The 80m general cargo vessel had arrived the previous day with fertiliser from Germany.
The ship was built in 1995 as the Russian registered 'TULOS'. The Cyrillic version of the name is still visible on plates at bow & stern.
She was unloaded in good time for departure but her visit coincided with a cycle of low tides meaning a wait for water.
The gallery shows the pilot being welcomed aboard before heading out of New Dock & south towards Workington where the pilot would disembark.
