The location assigned to this record is essentially arbitrary.
The date cited by Whittaker is apparently that of the reported discovery of wreckage, rather than of the loss of the vessel. It remains uncertain whether or not this vessel stranded at or near the reported location of the discovery of wreckage, or foundered and broke up offshore, possibly beyond Scottish waters.
