    I remember when she was launched, unfortunately couldnt be there too young at the time, but we had some of the crew stay with us. She was the first of 4 Nobles boats to come to Scalpay, the Jasper, Village Maid, I was at the launch of these two, the Vigilant and Ribhinn Donn II. Beautiful boats.
    is that a box for gas bottles aft of the lum?:coolsmiley::coolsmiley:

    Think it was the gas box, but everything changed when trawl winch went aboard, a good sea boat and could handle some weather, they don't build them like that now.
