Hoy Head on the way out

Referring to previous images (picture #8031, picture #1157 etc.); I happened to be in Irvine last weekend and took this pic of the 'Hoy Head'. A sad image.
(I didn't know her as the 'Hoy Head' but knew her in a latter existence as the MV 'Zenobia' when she serviced the Eastern Bloc 'klondykers' at Lerwick during the 80's.)
