'The attached picture is of the Enterprise that for a while lay in Kirkwall Basin and then the harbour at Stromness where she was used as a by her owner Neil Mckie for sailing trips in the Flow. The photograph was taken at the Irvine Boat Museum where she was berthed. I am not sure if she is still in Irvine.'

Yes, she is still in Irvine - if you are interested, there is now a short documentary about her and her history. Contact myself or my father (Neil McKie) for details.

The vessel astern of her is the Zenobia ex Hoy Head that ran on the South Isles service for many years
