Hoy Presto!

Here's a photo of a ship, the Hoy Head, beginning to load passengers at Houton, on Orkney Mainland, for the Southern Isles service to Lyness and Longhope on Hoy as well as to Flotta. Now take a look at the account in The Orcadian of the vessel having a new 13-metre section fitted in order to increase capacity. Later this year it will be back in service, a modern-day Viking Longship, or a rare case of 'Hoy Presto! - a Longer-ship.'

Amazing - but it must be cheaper than building a new vessel.
