See also ND35SE 8161.

The location assigned to this record is essentially arbitrary. The loss of these vessels may have occurred within the area of map sheet map sheet ND34NE.
It remains unclear whether the loss of these vessels occurred within Wick Harbour or out in Wick Bay. Wick Harbour (ND35SE 66.00) is centred at ND 36820 50670.
It also remains unclear whether or not these vessels stranded together and/or on the same occasion.
This group of losses is possibly to be equated with that entered as ND35SE 8161.
These vessels may be tentatively identified as fishing boats of uncertain type.
