Campbell didn't supply a date, but this may be something I remember. In the late 70s there was a chain of floating tanks, one end of which was tied to the base of the harbour, just in front of the wall. The other end was moored around a 100 yards offshore. I never knew what they were. Comment left on 04 October 2012 at 16:53 by Garve Scott-Lodge
