Orcadia laid up at Leith, 1996

I took this picture after the Orcadia had left the service of the OISC, before she went wherever she ended up. Any idea if she is still on the go?

A beauty she was! We enjoyed two runs from Shetland to Orkney and even my wife forgot all about her seasickness when we crossed the sumburgh roosts ... :-) (1980/1981)

Orcadia went to the Caribbean, but my records indicate that this was in 1994...could this picture have been a couple of years earlier perhaps. Great to see.

The St Ola was tied up next to her there in the early 1990s.
