Pentland Swell

I have had an email from someone who is trying to trace a photo of a boat called the Pentland Swell which worked out of Scrabster in the 1950's I believe,can anyone help?

I do not have one in my collection as this was before my time!

Many thanks.
Craig.

I've had a good look thru the sites I'm on and can only find a photo of the 1975 built Pentland Swell Craig. I'll keep an eye open for it and let you know if I find a photo.

The Pentland Swell WK353 became Mayflower FR210. Call sign MDWV. Mayflower left Olsens c1972.
In 1950 there was also the Pentland Firth WK224; Pentland Skerry WK251 and Pentland Wave WK245.
