    I'll have a stab....only suggestions.  BA117 boat on left may beWeatherhead's Margarita 1, alongside, the Ranger BA206 Weatherheads 1927 built as Clan McTavish TT68 then to BA in1937, in 1950 back to TT as TT73 Ranger.  As you state BA264 Stormdrift. Can't identify next boat but outside boat could be BA?2 possibly Lea Rig BA32, 1939 Weatherheads.  Hope this helps

    BA32 could be the Aurora,but then again I could be way off the mark.

    Dowler...The Margarita you refer to owned by James McMillan was the second one to replace the one in the photo.She was TT141 and neighboured the Mary Bain. I was told this by Robert Ross and Peter McDougall.
    Cheers Bryan a know there was a few of them the old man was on her for a while between yachts.
