Fingal represented the last and final 'classic' style of tender once found throughout the three General Lighthouse Authorities of the British Isles. Performing a wide range of duties at Oban and at Stromness, Fingal served all the area needs of the service. Fingal came to be unique in her design and historic mode of operation, and enjoyed Royal patronage. A well recognized and admired vessel, her private acquisition after the millennium has seen her preservation up to her new and future role as a luxury 'boatique' hotel in Scotland, as part of the RY Britannia experience in Leith Docks. In this book, Trevor Boult provides an accessible and lasting tribute to Fingal, based largely on personal and objective experience with support from other authorities.
Trevor Boult retired from the sea to become a writer. He writes for the Numast Telegraph and the Northern Lighthouse Board magazine. He sailed on the final voyage of the RRS John Biscoe, documenting the journey and the unspoilt Antarctic at a time when few people had ever visited the Southern Ocean.
