Well that's a first for me. Never seen a concrete boat before. Appropriately named 'Crete Tree' the boat was a coal hulk anchored in Glumaig Bay in Stornoway for many years. The Scalpay Shipping Co. Roderick Cunningham (Scalpay)Ltd towed her the 24 miles to Scalpay and scuttled her to form a pier of sorts in 1962.
