Northcoast Explorer being towed from West of Swona to John o'Groats, with engine failure.
Was it a Pirate Lifeboat on the leading end of the towrope?

The North Coast Explorer was lost on the west side of Stroma a few years back, the passengers and crew were rescued but she sank at the Gloup and was a total loss. A shame as she was a fine rib, enjoyed a couple of trips out on her.
