The location and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are essentially tentative. The loss may alternatively have occurred within the quasi-administrative areas designated as Maritime - Fife or Maritime - West Lothian.

The form and spelling of the name of this vessel remain unclear.

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 14 May 2004.

This vessel is not cited as either a wreck or a casualty in official Danish statistics, which are generally comprehensive and reliable. This may suggest that she was successfully recovered.
