    Bairns Pride shifted a fair bit of herring in her day.
    Found her for sail on the net the other day looks better when she was a fishing boat.  Ran fishing trips along side her in the clyde when she was still varnished.  Can be seen here http://remote.apollo...in/159835_1.jpg http://remote.apollo...ew_159835_2.jpg http://remote.apollo...ew_159835_3.jpg

    We lived aboard her 79-81, mum and dad skippered her for Danny dipratto(sp?!). I remember going out with surveyors to a pipeline being laid off Ayr. We were based in Troon marina after beung moored off roseneath. What a way to grow up! Anyone know where she is now ? Would love to be able to let dad know. Thank you
