I am sorry, I forgot to leave some information about the image above, so here they are: You can see the KÄTHE NIEDERKIRCHNER which was a German ship that sunk before Muckle Skerry in the Pentland Firth in August 1965.
We, a publisher in North Germany, would like to use an image of this ship for a book cover.
Please let me know if you can help, and then we could talk about details and conditions. Thank you!
Best wishes
