Seeker on the stocks

Seeker on the stocks

Peter John Campbell's Seeker on the stocks at Nobles yard in Girvan, almost ready to launch. The tripod has been fabricated but not hoisted into position at this point.

Picture by Alisdair MacLeod, Scalpay on his trip down to pick up Ribhinn Donn II.

    Is she slightly shorter than Alliance and Village Belle etc. Maybe it is just the angle?  I am not sure if there were differences in length amongst this type of nobles design?  Great picture indeed.  I have not seen one this early in a boats life!

    She's a good deal shorter ... 12m versus 18m for the Belle
