The map sheet assigned to this record is essentially arbitrary. Inverness Firth is not noted as such on the 1996 edition of the OS 1:50,000 map; the name may apply to Beauly Firth.
The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998), possibly suggesting that she was successfully refloated.
Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 4 October 2004.
