    Don't know the answer to that one Liberty,you've got me stumped there.
    it was an irish built boat probably tyrrels, had a kelvin engine forrit must have been around late 70s.was converted to a houseboat and sure someone from fisherrow bought it
    All us "baldy" guys would settle for a third of the "thatch" of the lad holding up the derrick!!!

    I can mind the Plough right enough Liberty,typical Irish 50 fitter wi' the engine forrit,Martin Gardner that had her on the Fife side was it no? but as to whether Jimmy had her/owned her??...pass! Yes Gee Bee,"Fid" aye had a guid heid o' hair on him...no that many years since I last saw him but he still had plenty o'it left then O0

    The lack o' grey or the thickness o' ma thatch has nothing to do with Grecian 2000 or monkey glands BOC,just good malt whiskey and red wine taken in moderate quantities (and I let the wife dae the worrying for me !!) O0
