Note (26 September 2011)

(Location entered as NO c. 879 854 [N56 57.60 W2 11.90]). The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. Stonehaven Harbour (NO88NE 56.00) is centred at NO 87764 85415. Its entrance is ill defined.

The remains of the vessel were presumably removed without delay from this constrained location.
