Wooden Ships Comments on this Stroma Yole

Built by Banks Brothers in Harrow on the north Scottish coast in 1904.

Registered in Wick in 1912 with the registration number WK378.  She was built for a group of owners on Stroma, David Sinclair, Hugh Simpson, James Robertson, Matthew Dundas and Sinclair Bremner.  All were crofters on the island of Stroma who required a boat to transport their livestock to and from the mainland across the notoriously rough Pentland Firth.

Rebuilt in the 1970’s and sailed extensively around the Summer Isles and Caledonian Canal, to Cromarty and Nairn on the Moray Firth and to the Portsoy Boat Festival.

The vessel recently was found taking on water and lifted ashore for safety.  The engine had water around it at that time but has since been proven to be in running condition and evidently did not get water inside the engine.
