Carmania ashore at Longhope pier

I believe this is a trawler named "Carmania". She ran ashore at Torness and was refloated and taken to Longhope. You can see the damage to the propellor.

Was this the same Carmania,that was later wrecked on the Kirk rocks?
The above date may not be correct.

The " Carmania 11 " was wrecked on 14th February 1929 on the Kirk Rocks.
Don't know if this was the same boat in earlier years.

I'm certain that this is the same "Carmania 2" that was wrecked on the Kirk Rocks in 1929. In 1924 the "Carmania 2" ran aground at Ha Wick. The crew scrambled ashore, but the ship was refloated. It is obvious that she was then beached at Longhope for repairs.
