SHOCK: BBC Scotland miss launch at Ferguson Marine

From the Scottish Government News site yesterday:

Milestone for publicly owned yard.

The first vessel to be completed since Ferguson Marine came into public ownership has been officially named at the yard in Port Glasgow. The Helen Rice, a support vessel for the salmon-farming sector, has been lifted into the Clyde and handed over to Inverlussa Marine Services, a family-owned business based on the Isle of Mull.

The sister ship MV Kallista Helen will be launched in 2020.

What is it with these Helens? Are the owners helenophiles following in the tradition of the one who might have launched a thousand ships back in the 2nd Century BC? Did the staff work like Trojans on this?
