Mia Sophie B being towed to Rothesay Dock escorted by tugs Strathfoyle and Bruiser.
Presumably she suffered from engine problems?

Anyone know the problem with MIA SOPHIE B, she's being lying in the Rothesay Dock for over two months now?

There is a report on the Fleetmon website which says that on 29th April off Ireland’s west coast she lost her rudder and started drifting. She was taken in tow the following day and brought to Rothesay Dock (her original destination, having departed Galway).
