Photograph of the stricken Loch Seaforth being dragged onto Gott Bay beach in 1973

Colour photograph of the ferry Loch Seaforth being lifted by crane-ship `Ulrich Harms`, whilst both being towed by a tug towards the beach at Gott Bay, where it was deliberately beached. The Loch Seaforth struck rocks in Gunna Sound in 1973 and sank whilst berthed at Gott pier. It obstructed other boats trying the use the pier and had to be towed out of the way until it could be properly removed. (original photo stored in filing cabinet 10 drawer 1)
