Think that was earlier than 76. She was last used running from Stromness to Flotta in 1975 and after a while laid up at Stromness was sold to a local seafaring group. Mac Bain (Senior), Angus Sinclair and myself delivered her to North Shields about June 76.

Wij voeren naar Hoy met brommers in 1974. Heb nog een foto van de Watchfull.

Remember a new Volvo car falling out of the slings onto a bollard on The Lyness Pier then the lifting gear fell through the roof !!. The Car was just fit for the scrapyard !!.
