OLD & NEW. The " Peninnis " (the first ISSCo ship 1920-1926) , the 1st. " Scillonian " ( 1926-1956) and the " Scillonian III " (1977 - today) leaving St. Mary's Harbour. All photos taken from the Pier Head at the same state of tide showing the relative sizes. I am unable to get the NEW in the same positions as the OLDs as the present day boat has to make her turn further out due to the increase in moorings in the harbour and the quay is longer now so the original spot would not work either !
