Pole Star

The Pole Star at her pier in Stromness dressed overall?
Picture added on 11 April 2007
I have a feeling she was completed by Caledon yard Dundee in 1962 The similar "Fingal" was built on the Clyde in 1966. This one was later operated as an "Adventure Cruise" vessel in the West Indies for a number of years but was scrapped following severe hull damage when a slipway cradle collapsed under her while undergoing overhaul.
