    I, think your spot on with that swivel, there is no much you dont know
    I remember the Kathryn BRD 447 neighbours with the Mary-Ann . thanks for the info swivel I didn't know
    that was her
    think there was another fairlie boat in the brd fleet called the castle moil george
    I thats right the Castle Moil BRD 360 was'nt unlike the Kathryn
    Was on her today in Tarbert. Fantastic detail. Built Fairlie in 48, sister boat to Golden West/ Venture but without step deck. Was replanked by the current owner, original copper composite nails reused during build, 2 double bed cabins ahead of wht was the hold, now lower saloon. Shower room etc. Engine now a John Deer!. I took a photo of her in Stonehaven in the mid/ late 90's was called daybreak then. Hull and deck finish has to be seen to be believed.
