Below can be seen ML 489 the flotilla leader for the motor launches stationed at HMS Seahawk.

The second photo of ML 489 shows that Loch Fyne can get just a little rough at times. If the winter had come, a bit on the chilly side as well.

ML 489 was constructed at the yard of Jas Miller at St. Monans in the East Neuk of Fife.
