    Believe she was,1955? I think she was in Shetland at one point,then St.Minnans(Tom Adam) and then Ronnie McBeath had her as the Dakevron,still with the original 95 in her.Decommed a while back.Looks bonnier painted blue than the green of later years.

    She was a pretty boat. I was at the launch.  She was indeed the first Gerrards build.

    Is this the same Bairn's Pride that Jim Campbell owned?
