    Thank you for that Swivel,  and also Ringnetman, you are probably right about young Gribbens I just thought when I say the browinsh hair that it may have been young Micheal RIP.  What year was this taken?
    Yes james she was like the Toms boat. the A/STAR was built for Jock Gemmel SUMMER ROSE, when Peter got her he changed her name to the STAR OF THE SEA. got her reg Oban, with in a wk he was told he could'nt change her name and she had to be reg Inverness. back to A/STAR INS178. Peter bought her in the free state from Matt Sloan, she ended up some twat killed her.
    Yes Ronnie this would be 1965/6, the crew aboard her was Peter. Jackan. Andrew Crockett. Donald Galbraith. geoff Comber. and another fellow I think he belonged the Weavers castle, you should know 3 of them fellows.
