The Second Snark approaching Dunoon

Photographed on 23 July 2008.
Built in 1938 by William Denny of Dumbarton on the Firth of Clyde, Scotland, as a tug and tender for use at their shipyard, replacing their previous steam driven vessel The Snark.
Although The Second Snark is a fairly small vessel, Clyde Marine Services Ltd show her Passenger Capacity as 120, restricted to 60-80 if full onboard catering is required. She still retains many original features including teak decks, varnished woodwork and polished brass. Two underdeck heated saloons, one with a bar, contribute to her continuing popularity as a cruise boat and charter vessel from April to September, particularly for "booze cruises".

She was used to go up the river Leven where the engs were built and tow the engs on a barge called the Bowjum back down river at certain times of the tide. There are deep scrapes on the bridge when it was a bit tight. She had been used to take the Sma Corks down to Rothsay every year.
