    The 50ft, 25ton Wilsheernie KY140 Seiner, built by J N Miller at St Minins for Pittenweem owners.  Afraid I don't have build date.
    T he Wilsheernie was built dual purpose she neeboured the Jean Wood at the ringnet sold to Portavogie she was almost new not very old.

    Every time I see a pic of Miller's skiffs of the late 40s/early 50s I think that they were as bonny a model as any of the yards produced..think the stern was the clincher for me,but there again I've aye been an admirer o' a nicely roonded starn baith ashore and afloat :coolsmiley:
    Slight correction on the name it was the "Wilshernie" called after Ernie Wood's bairns Wilma, Sheena & Ernie, I mind of going to the May on her when I was about 8 or 9.
    She was sold on after the skipper met with a serious accident.
