    Paul she is approx 65ft * 20ft very heavy built the name on the bow is Provider but is painted out.  She does look very similar to the boat you mention even had the roller on the strength with the sternpost cut to suit.  If you want  closer pictures let me know.  Alan

    been down again today Provider to the name carved into the bow, paced her out at 23 paces which would make her around 70 ft long.  She was originally bought to do diving but now been sold and is being worked on.

    Conquest BCK 157 ?
    Built as Reliant BCK 36, then Antaeus, then Provider BF 136.
    I believe speaking to the guys at Burntisland that she is being taken abroad once work has been carried out on her, her owner is on the West coast of Scotland.  Since taking the picture the shelter deck surrounding the wheelhouse has been removed.  I will try to find out more details about her.
