Britannia

Britannia seen here undergoing restoration in Arbroath Harbour (Scotland) on 30th July 2008.

Appears to have a Home Port of Kirkcaldy (Scotland) but I cannot find any information on her - anyone out there know anything about her?



    formerly BF178

    steve i think she was Lossiemouth onwed  at the seine net then she went to Gardenstown. and in the late 60s till 75 she was a hellper boat to the wooden purser Bdelium .then she was at the prawn trawl till she was sold away from the fishing to Fife.
    Hi Mark and Bryan

    Thanks for the information - ther guy carrying out the restoration is doing a good job - of course in hindsight I should have just gone up to home and asked about her history  :;)

    Regards

    Steve E.
