Unknown matter to me.
At the life buoy is readable "CFB - Hull"
Does anybody know something about this wrong parked vessel? Maybe in Terneuzen or Breskens?

My question has now been largely resolved.
The ship was en route from the UK to Breskens shortly after WWII with Cole for Mr. Vroon (the father of Piet Vroon). In dense fog she passed the pier at the port entrance of Breskens at the wrong side.
The pier still exists, although it was strongly rebuilt in the 1950s. At extremely low tide, part of the old pier is still visible.
