John Morgan will talk about the history of Ferguson Marine shipyard at Port Glasgow from its early years up to the present day and will describe their current projects. The last shipbuilder on the lower Clyde, the company went into administration in 2014, but was purchased by Clyde Blowers Capital and has since gone on to become one of the most advanced shipyards in the world. The talk is illustrated with some film of the shipyard and its apprentices in days gone by.
