Wha Am I?

I thought I'd try one with a Scots twist:

Jet propelled I was not, until the last
Black, white and red abaft the mast
On the firth, not the Forth, I spent my days
From pier to pier and through the bays
Sir Walter invented me and Donizetti wrote
A musical play of me, note by note
The book and the opera about a bride
Do you know my name, please, you decide

Right track, Hugh--

now the name of the ship. and, possibly, the name of the novel and the name of the opera.

Hugh, I was waiting for you to come back with it.
You got the book, Jeff got the ship and I named the opera--pretty even.

You should have kept quiet Jeff. I never twigged.

Next one Bruce (Applause)
