So far, a real mystery vessel and were it not for this 1907 photograph of her showing her at Pailey Harbour on the White Cart River, I would have no evidence that she ever existed - no builder's or owner's records, and no entries in the Mercantile Navy Lists. Given that it may only be the last three letters of her name that are visibile on her port stern quarter, one thought could be that she has been misidentified for the Eisa, but there is no record of the latter or of any similarly named vessel having been registered at Paisley at that time.
