MORAY FIRTH IV

One of my first ship photographs was of this lovely old coaster MORAY FIRTH IV unloading a cargo of stone at Stornaway, on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. May 1973.

i worked on the stornoway car ferry from 1980-1985 and remember the moray firth iv docked regularly around 1981-1982 at the same pier. a few years later on "it, ll be alright on the night" tv programme presented by barry norman, I recall a news presenter reporting an incident about the vessel, and after several attempts at calling her the "moray forth the fifth" threw in the towel.not a bad tongue twister , pity she never had a sister ship called the "firth of forth v"
