The map sheet assigned to this record is arbitrary, being derived from the reported location of discovery of the boat; a location within the quasi-administrative area defined as Maritime - Orkney may also be assigned. The parent vessel probably foundered out at sea (in either the Atlantic or the North Sea), probably beyond Scottish waters.
The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998).
