Viking Vulcan blaze

Viking Vulcan ablaze in leith docks. Previously the Lowestoft trawler 'St. Philip', it's been rotting in Leith since I got off it in 1999.

Sister ship to the Viking Vixen (St. Patrick)

It makes you wonder, what with the cost of fuel and all..................

Why they didn't just tow it across the Forth to the breakers at Inverkeithing?

Many a famous warship has ended its days there, but in recent years - has dealt only with small vessels.
