    What a cracker....Looks at a glance like ring net mast/pole arrangement, but nothing else on deck appears to indicate this! What method was she set up for and any more info on the boat.
    With all the baskets in the stern, it looks like they are at the lines.

    Thanks for that information.
    2 great-uncles of mine owned the boat. Bob and Peter (Don) Stephen. I have a diary of a late uncle who was one of the crew for a while. It relates how they sailed through the heart of Scotland from the Forth to the Clyde, tied up overnight on the way through. No dodging into a heavy sea there!! Fished lines East and West coast, shooting up to 28 lines. Not much money for their efforts, going by the diary. Also fished drift net.
