Flotta Pier, Ros Bui, and Pentalina
Picture added on 26 December 2008
ROS BUI was formerly an Irish Fishing Boat. She was sold out of fishing and converted to a motor yacht. She was on charter work at Flotta but caught fire and was a total loss. There were some 80 or thereabouts of the 50ft Irish boats for the 1950's and 1960's. See details on www.sol.co.uk/i/iangwhittaker/rosdonn/gallery1.htm

Ah, so a rhetorical question by Jimmy in the first place... Anyone got a better photo of 'Ros Bui' itself?
