    ex MFV, built by Martin of Granton.
    Thanks for the info guys Not the one i was looking for
    seen a bit in a lifeboat magazine about a fidelity that ran aground going into port the lifeboat rescued the crew pretty sure she was bf reg cant remember how long ago or if she was wrecked water was deck level in photo.
    used to go out on her when sye smith had her in 1978 she was AH.113 he then got the press on
    this is the FIDELITY that sunk at buckie after hitting rocks near the harbour entrance,
    the late john waddie from nehaven area had her at that time,
    crew all safe,,
    think it sunk not long after sye sold it.

    used to pump it out when sye was away hame at weekends when boat was in lossie for the summer
