Transcend  BCK 75

Being launched at Macduff  19th June 1958.


    This must be the original site where the Macduff boats were built, I always thought, where the slip is now was the original slip.

    This was Clem Patersons yard and then Watts took it over and moved from Banff harbour. I think that it may have been used by Stephens the boat builders before Patersons started there in the 1930s. Paterson also had the Foundry, their engineering workshop in Crook o Ness Street close to the slip. In the early days there were also shipyards on the Bankhead and Low shore to the East of the current harbour. The shed at the slip for building the steel boats is relatively recent.
