    ats right ronnie was built with whaleback.taken off cos deck cracking with heat.
    Whaleback taken off because she filled with water  not because of heat and wheelhouse looks different to original

    I heard that story as well Willie,supposed to have taken a lump aboard gaun intae the Broch,but I've also heard that it was a load o' rubbish that yarn,so which one is the correct version?....the truth is out there somewhere ;D
    Well that was a crewman at the time that told me maybe the owner himself will say he is a member here Ronnie or the old fella can say but the crewman is also a member here as well so I believe him
