The Mersey Ferry 'Royal Daffodil' has been laid-up at Duke St bridge for a few years now, due to cost cutting measures and rumours of being up for Sale.

Yesterday, Tuesday 31st May, she wasn't there. No sign of her on Ships AIS either.
I'm sure she was there last week.

Anybody know what's happening?

She's a bit low in the water considering she is empty.

Thanks DD.

I thought it looked a bit low as well, and had been getting lower over the past couple of months.

There is another locally built asset going to rust, disrepair, disappear...

Thanks Ed, but I don't do Twitter.
