She now lies in 15 meters of water where she can still be enjoyed by divers & sea life. A gentle dive amongst scattered wreckage.

Allen Tony10/05/2013In 1928, shipbuilders Cochrane & Sons of Selby, Yorkshire were contracted to build a steam trawler of 690 tons, 150 feet long, a beam of 24 feet with a speed of 10 knots, the Glen Strathallan SS. The firm that had ordered her went bankrupt before completion. She was bought by millionaire Colby Cubbin, who converted her to a pleasure yacht. She was lent to the Royal Navy during the 2nd world war as an escort vessel, after which she was returned & Colbin enjoyed her until his death.

In his will he wished her to be used as a floating school and when the time came that she was no longer useful, she was to be sunk.

Cochrane and Sons built their reputation for building trawlers and coasters for the Hull and Grimsby fishing fleets. - - - In 1965 control of the yard passed from the Cochrane family to Ross Group Ltd who then sold on to the Drypool Group Ltd in 1969. In 1976, the Selby yard was bought up by United Towing Co. Ltd of Hull.
