Puffer-VIC-32-at-Narrows-w.jpg
Puffer VIC 3249 viewsThe puffer VIC 32, also known as Auld Reekie, passes Rosneath's historic Ferry Inn while steaming through Rhu Narrows on May 3 2017. VIC 32 was built by Dunston’s of Thorne, Yorkshire, at Rowhedge in November 1943. This was a busy time for the Clyde shipbuilding yards and the Admiralty needed 50 — later 100 — victualling boats in a hurry. So they were built in groups of three by various different yards in England. In 1989 the “Friends of VIC 32” group was started, a money raising venture in case of an engineering or other crisis, and there are now hundreds of Friends. The vessel is operated by Puffer Steamboat Holidays Ltd. and offers five day cruises in the West Highlands each summer. Photo by Stewart Noble.May 04, 2017
