She was a small, engine aft, single masted cargo ship built as the 'James Mutter' by Scott & Co., Bowling in 1884 for J & W Mutter of Glasgow. Originally 100' in length and measuring 157GT, she was lengthened in 1891 by 18', her GT being raised to 185. She was driven by a two cylinder compound (16", 28" x 22").
David MacBrayne acquired her in 1889 and for many years she worked MacBrayne's Loch Fyne cargo service, leaving Bridge Wharf, under the Caledonian Railway Bridge, with mast and funnel down, three times a week.
She went to the Douglas Shipping Co.(IOM) in 1917 and was sold to Samuel Gray of Belfast in 1932, being wrecked in the same year.
From Duckworth & Langmuir's "West Highland Steamers".
Seems to me she is mentioned in "Para Handy". That, in itself, would make her immortal.
"The s.s. Texa made a triumphal entry to the harbour by steaming in between two square-rigged schooners, the Volant and Jehu, of Wick, and slid silently, with the exactitude of long experience, against the piles of Rothesay quay, where Para Handy sat on a log of wood."
So begins "A New Cook', the first tale in "In Highland Harbours With Para Handy". (Hugh Foulis, William Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh and London, 1911).
JKB, you are right. As the gentleman himself would say "Chust Sublime".
