I believe this dredger sank after hitting the Renfrew ferry when it came down the river cart into the clyde

Feedback: One small correction. I was on the ferry leaving Renfrew and the Ajoy came up river and crossed the  front of the ferry. The ramp sliced open the hull, and the  dredger turned into the dock at the side of the ferry ramp and capsized, it's superstructure coming to rest on the dockside. Several men jumped into the river just before the capsizing.
