Description:
With an EWS Class 66 seen crossing the viaduct in the background with a coal train, the former fishing trawler 'Ella Hewett' (LO 94), which is now the 317dwt Standby-Safety Vessel named 'St Kitts' (IMO: 6401701), lies below in Inverkeithing bay in a rather forlorn condition as it awaits the inevitable at the hands of RM Supplies (formerly TW Ward) shipbreakers on Thu 9th March 2006 @ 10:23.
