    She got the whole roof of the wheelhouse sliced clean off by the Niels Risager's bow rope in a gale of Westerly wind at the South Pier in Oban.I can still picture George Strachan that had her then,taking her away from the pier standing in the remains of the wheelhouse..nae roof,windows falling out,uprights crumbling..it was like something out a comedy film!That must have been around 1975 or 76 sometime.A bonny wee skiff she was too.

    Yes that's correct Jay,she looked bonny in the two colours(as does the Christina,it suits these wee skiffs).She was lost at the South West end of Loch Linnhe on the North West shore at the back end of 1977.Got tail tied at the prawn creels in a South East breeze close in and went ashore,total loss.If memory serves,George was ashore that day and one of the crew had her out.No a very nice job having to go up to the owner's house at night and say "remember that boat ye used to have" lol

    grief, that's a casualty that passed me by
    wondering how I missed it as was in TT
    George had reddish hair and a beard, did he not?
    as for boat, I think she still had a K series Kelvin in her
