    Yo! Swivel
    That's a good memory you have
    How is Arthur?
    The one thing you could rely on with that boat was her ability to leak!
    aye arthur keepin fine jay she was past her best at that time. think i might have a picture of rhiban donn my brother kenny had her for diving a yr or two back sold her to southern ireland

    Endeavor past her best ... that's an understatement
    With her buggered keel and creaking winch for which the guide on gear comprised a crowbar wi me hanging onto it, she was definitely past it
    Still Arthur could turn a coin or three with her ... and did
    We once tried pairing for herring with Paul and his Village Belle 3 ... I think before she was repowered by Archie Macallum. It was a hopeless exercise. Too little power and that was just for starters
    Mind you, some money was spent on her in Northern Ireland after Artheru sold Endeavour
    I saw her in the late 80s looking quite smart ... lying in Portavogie at the time
    I was then working at Seafish
    Still think the Evelyn looked better with her original dark green

    she was a bonny boat regardless of colour
    I would certainly agree with that.
