For all those interested in wrecks on the coast and diving

The trawler Kilsyth was built at Lowestoft in 1954 as the Boston Pegasus. On 13 January 1977 she was under tow to the Tees to be broken up when the tow parted during a storm and she became a seaside attraction at Whitley Bay. Seen here on 30 January 1977, she was eventually broken up in-situ.

Situ seems to have been a busy scrapyard in its day :D
