Stornoway : Home of The Petersens for Four Decades
Stornoway sank on her mooring in 2003. She was raised and dragged to a slipway but found to be beyond refloating or realistic repair, and within a few days, February 2004, was broken up, just some of her bronzework and the rig including the mast being recovered.
Launched as Bar Ann in 1926, renamed Vaeringer soon after, and then Stornoway in 1928.
