That's an ex Northern Lighthouse Board tender, either the old 'Pharos' or 'Pole Star'. Looks like she's being demolished.

Sir, there are some anomoly's of ships business of which I am unaware; I had thought that after the last line was "let go" the Captain of the vessel assumed the role of "God" .I have always accepted this as fact. And very much doubt that things have changed in the last 150 years. If you think this possible please let me know. I have sailed with people that were under 2 year articles, who originally thought they were going to Rotterdam for the weekend and after Swansea ended up in NZ-Narua for the next 18 months. there seems little "lower Deck" in your subscribers, when I was on the Carronpark the only fresh-water available was
through a padlocked tap at the after-side of the galley I suggest that this was 50 years ago but when you re-sign your articles please look at the small print. I have been prompted with the photos of the "CougerAce' the photos do not depict the terror that must be felt in all those individuals; She is deep-sea'you are 7 ft, from a slide to the o'gan via obstructions such as the odd sat/nav aerial. You can no longer trust god because he is standing alongside you, feeling the same as you;
I would like to thank the master of the "Cougar Ace" that he was able to effect a copy-book rescue such as was so graphically shown Navel Archcitects should be more open in their discussions on GM. The "Cougar Ace" or any large passenger liner, should be aware that god rules the seas not GM. graham christian

This ship I think was destined to replace the Amazing Grace of Windjammer Barefoot Cruises ..Unfortunately she didnt make it... The Slipway does a lot of work for Windjammer cruises...One of their vessels was built there , or half constructed there, SV Legacy, Old hull similar to the Rogue thats was rebuilt in 1998 to a fully equipped windjammer cruise vessel.....
