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.
