She was built by Yarwood Northwich 1959 as a coal burner,later converted to a motor vessel,wrecked on Jura.
The Dawnlight I was a product of Scotts Greenock,and had no real resemblance
as she had two hatches,her gear was a Hi abb later re placed by a crane.
Well done Bobby. Yarwood's (Yd.No.906) sister to MOONLIGHT (183547)(Yd.No.878). STORMLIGHT was the last steam coaster built in a UK yard. 158grt 69n 88.3 x 21.0 x 9.3 feet with a Yarwood compound -200IHP. Launched 8.6.1957 she was completed for Ross & Marshall on 24.9.1957. She was re-engined by Scotts at Bowling in 1972 and fitted with a 6-cyl Ford 225bhp. 15.12.1973 in gale force winds she stranded on rocks outside Craighouse, Jura while in ballast Campbeltown to Oban (said to be due to heavy weather and rudder problems). 23.1.1974, after prolonged bad weather, turned on her side and was abandoned, settled as a CTL. Greenock registration was closed 4.1974.
Did the Stormlight not have 2 or 3 of them Fords driving hydraulic pumps, and a Hydraulic motor driving the prop shaft, I seem to remember her engineroom being
very noisy with hydraulic's screaming, I think it was an experimental thing at the time.
