A very busy Kirkwall basin

A very busy harbour basin. The picture again taken early to mid 1960s. A field day for for anyone wanting to name the various boats and as always I'm keen to find out a bit more about the pictures.

Norwegian longline or shark fishing boats, I think. The right hand boat, SF-8-85?, is from Sogn og Fjordane, north of Bergen.
