What ship?

Not the liner - the sailing ship. Does anyone know what it was?

Not the Swan. Could be Attie Wall's boat "Sula Skear" (not sure of the spelling)

Liner is "Caledonian Star" an ex German stern trawler. I would suggest the sailing vessel might be one of the faroese smacks "Johanna", "Westward Ho" or "Nordlysid"
