Weatherhead-built Margaret Alison ... repainting behind the pier at Port Bannantyne (Bute) as I recall ... about 1982
Reg No was PL70. Had an IOM registry because family lived at Kirkmichael way back then

    sure a saw this one in a yacht magazine years ago about being converted think a remember something about the wheelhouse coming from another boat might be wrong though sure it was margaret alison.

    Scratching memory cell ... yes, Mizpah
    She was an Alex Noble 40ft boatie
    Was owned by the Scottish Marine Biological Association (SMBA) out of the Cumbraes for years
    Got stove in mid 70s and laye behind the pier at Millport with a bloody great hole in her
    Anyway, was fixed up and put back to work
    Wonder where she is now? If she exists at all of course!
