Photo Category: Wrecks & Relics
In October 1974 the 338gt.Fleetwood trawler FD 433 WYRE MAJESTIC was returning to her home port via the Sound Of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland. It was alleged that the skipper was in his cabin celebrating a good catch and the mate was in charge of the ship.Unfortunately,it is alleged, he too had been celebrating and consequently the ship just drove onto the rocks at Bunnahabain on the coast of Islay, where it still lies today. The trawler was owned by Wyre Trawlers(British United Trawlers Ltd.)of Fleetwood, Lancashire and was built in 1956.
The colours were black funnel with two narrow white rings whilst the hull was black with a narrow white line and red boot-topping.
I took the photographs in August 1988 and I am informed that she has since broken in two and only the stern section remains.

An haunting image of a beautiful vessel mistreated by her handlers.

Took the pictures in July 1988, sounds as if I was lucky to get them if she's now as bad as you say.
