Ships in the Sound Special
A trip to Tobermory on a fine day - and even in a slightly exciting sea conditions - is usually a pleasure: the crew are always welcoming and friendly, there's a good chance of seeing sea life such as dolphins, and there's the opportunity to get up close to some of the ships we usually watch from afar.
Maclean's Nose is seen in the distance,
On our return we passed the fishing boat Ensis, OB1004, close inshore. She was built in Norway in 1992, has a fibreglass hull, and on one of the trawler websites is described as a dredger, which surprised me. She seems to have been working out of both Fort William and Oban.
