Couldn't make out the name when I passed her in the Sound of Kerrera a few weeks ago.A tidy wee ship and a bonny conversion,she looks "just right".Has the cut of a Jimmy Noble's 40 footer about her,but maybe I'm wrong.Anybody know?

    NOT A CLUE Ronnie...but there, that's stuck it on the recent comments for you lol  :laugh: O0 O0 ???

    Cheers for the info Buster.That's the last yard I would have thought of,she just didnae have the Miller's look about her,especially the stern..more like a Nobles of the Broch job..shows ye how much I ken! A bonny wee conversion anyway,no spoiled like some of them wi' a block of flats or a garden shed stuck on the deck.
    just read somewhere recently,that a guy bought 2 of these on the clyde to run men back and forrit to big ships at anchor.....
