    Hi Ally
    I'd say you're out by a fair few years
    By the early 80s the mast had been moved back to just in front of the wheelhouse to help handle scallop dredges
    The bit I can't remember is exactly what year she sank in the Crinan canal ... very late 70s/early 80s. Got cut through by ice when attempting to transit  the canal. Owned by the Currie family of Tighnabruaich for donkeys years
    Don't recollect what happened to her after the sinking except that she was rasied and (I think) repaired
    Anyone know her fate? She was a 30's built boat (Noble FR) and even at the time of the sinking had a varnihsed foredeck

    Could easy have been the 70's Jay i just cant remember :gunsout:
    Built in FR 1934 BA61 Dood's had her in Tarbert before she went to the Kyles
