    She was in Campbeltown for a wee while after the Mitchells got the new Beryl (now the Andrias N 470)built. That was maybe about 1966 or 67, then Campbell Reid(sk.),Charlie Main and Alec Smith took her to Oban as OB 200 around 1968.She was sold in the 70s and converted and is still on the go as far as I know.

    Never knew that Cecil had her on hire John,I thought she was bought into the Toon.Wee Campbell fished away no bad with her.Was at the sprats wi' him and Big Ian MacDonald fae Tobs with the Fair Maid,when the old man had the Kittiwake.Ye've heard o' the big 5 ??...well we were the wee 3 O0 We were out at Tiree at one stage trying the herring when the big 5 were there...we could hardly steam ower their heids when they were towing the speed they were going,never mind catch anything O0 If I mind right,what we got for the tow we split atween the three boats for a breakfast...They're gaun tae the neck wi' 660 Blackstones and 86 footers and we've got a 76,a 95 and a 120 Kelvin and three auld plugs and wondering how we got feck all O0

    I didna ken either Bertie that Cecil had the Beryl for a while  It must have been a few years ago as I have never heard him mention her  I spoke to him a couple of weeks ago and he said he would like to get up to Lossie this year for the fishermens bowling competition if all goes well
