Steel trawler

19 March 1925 - Summary: vessel was returning to port in rough conditions when a wave lifted it onto the North Pier. Crew rescued by life saving apparatus.

After sailing on a fishing trip 12 March 1925, heavy seas persuaded the captain to return to Aberdeen where a number of other trawlers were stormbound. The Strathyre crossed the harbour bar but in a very heavy swell, it being low water, a huge wave lifted onto the North Pier where she remained fast. Captain Crombie, the Harbour Master, called out the Coastguard Life Saving Crew and after a line was attached to one of her masts, the crew were brought ashore by breeches buoy leaving the trawler to become a total wreck.
