    I wonder if this small vessel has been deliberately beached to unload.
    It has a very large derrick/crane fitted and may have been engaged in scrapping or salvaging a wreck offshore.

    Just realised that there is another picture of Basalt on here with the comments that it was on salvage work and was deliberately beached after being holed.
    Amazingly whilst sorting old family photos today found three pictures of Basalt sitting high and dry on Salt Scar rocks ! No name was visible on these so it solves a bit of a mystery.
