'An SULAIRE' (SY 456) -1

'An SULAIRE'  (SY 456) -1
The only remaining full sized 'sgoth niseach' (Ness boat) left. There were once 100's of these boats in use around the islands.
This was the last one built!
It was built 1993-94. The building was done in a large old warehouse in Stornoway, and platforms were constructed around it, so one could watch the work being done.
I used to spend couple of hours each time I was in town having a good look.

Nice picture of this interesting vessel. It would be lovely to see more pictures of this ship in a completed condition.

Put the name into google. I will have other pics of her in my various albums, but none of her in sail.
The mast is only stepped when they want to sail her.

Nicely composed shot with the black and white buildings matching the boat.
You have any photos from watching the construction?
