    You're bang on wi' all 3 Davie,John Brindle was the lad's name,"Gremlin" was the dug.She aye used tae lie under the whaleback and one time we got a visit from these very nice men in their rubber boat armed wi' the measuring guages.The fella had just got himself half way ower the rail when the dug came thundering doon the deck and gied wan hoora WOOF right at the boys lug...ye never saw a man getting back ower the side as fast in yer puff !! He was gey sweer willed tae come back aboard even when we assured him the dug was harmless.
    ma memory isny as bad as a thuoght ronnie, am glad something sunk in ti the gray matter on me wee excursion roond the west coast >:( :'(  :'(
