Lifeboat Call-Out

The Tobermory lifeboat was called out mid-morning today and didn't return until after 2.00pm - she's seen here passing the Norwegian tug Boa Odin on her way back to her home port. There's nothing yet on the Tobermory RNLI Facebook page, here, and no press release from the RNLI Newsroom, though it's interesting to note that they are reporting five call-outs today already.

The AIS/MT website shows that the Tobermory boat went right round the peninsula to a point northeast of Rubha Aird Druimnich.

Meanwhile, a fine cruiser anchored in Kilchoan Bay today. The Aspyrian was built in 1968 for use as a harbour support vessel but, according to local newspaper the Grimsby Telegraph, made its way to the Mediterranean to ship people and drugs, before serving as a brothel in Rotterdam. After forty years on the Norfolk Broads, her owners are now sailing her into Scottish waters.
