    Great old photo  boats landing at the market are the Craig INS 85 skipper Willie Ralph standing forrat and the
    Britannia INS 68 skipper Jim Stewart at the winch The photo would have been taken mid to late 1950s as the Britannia was not built untill 1952 and was painted grey for a few years

    Great aul photo right enough, looking a bittie tight do you think its a Friday, the way the other boats are lying. Are you sure the Brittania was grey in colour I always thought she was white.

    Yes thats right Syd  She was built by Slater at Lossie 1946 for Hendry Murray  then his son also named Hendry went skipper when his father retired  He also had a son who was known as young Hendry Murray and was also aboard the Loadstar She was later sold to Willie Hay from Portsoy and Hendry and Young Hendry moved down to Rothesay
