Boats / Sailing / Ships

Nov. 11, 1968 - Prince Charles Sails in the new Queen Elizabeth 2. Prince Charles sailed in the new Queen Elizabeth 2 liner today - when the ship - making her first trip under her own power, left the fitting-out basin at Clyde bank for the 13-mile journey to dry dock at Greenock. When leaving the fitting out basin, the liner swung and struck the wooden wharf side, scraping some 20ft. of paintwork.
