    Great shot and no beaching legs!
    Agreed Ronnie... "just beautiful" pretty much sums them up, and no, we'll never see them like this again.  :police:

    Hi Dunard
    This is a pic I never tire of ... having seen it elsewhere
    A sort of timeless image ... but of an era now long gone
    It shows brilliantly three styles Reekie (cove line ends in a full stop which is not the case with Weatherhead), Miller and, by the look of it,  Noble Fraserburgh x 2  
    Best regards
    My late uncle Donnie MacKenzie took this and a few others on this particular day. I was visiting Matt MacDougall in hospital last night. His father had the Watercress built at Nobles FR around 1934. It was the year that Matt himself went to the fishing. Matt later skippered her himself.
