The sorry state of the old ice-breaker tug Scot II, before she was rescued by the Save the Scot II group, who hope to be able to restore her to her former glory and to see her back plying the waters
of the Caledonian Canal again.
You can see a lot more of her restoration project and as she was when she was the finest in the trade on the Caledonian Canal the waterway that connects the east coast of Scotland with the west coast.
The photograph above shows the fine lines of her stern, shades of the old "Clipper ships" there.
The restoration of the SCOT II is now being continued with her status now as a charitable trust being set up, which now means she has every chance of being restored.
She is still in a sorry state and this will be a massive restoration project which will mean that she is going to require help from all quarters from knowledge to funds and the following recent photographs show just how large a project this is going to be.
To be continued.
