    Like the photo especially as it shows Evelyn with what looks like her original wheelhouse. James you know your stuff and what good eyes you've got, you must be a lot younger than me!
    brian your eyes is as good now as mine were at 14 ur spot on with evelyns wheelhouse wee belle still has tt number thought oak lea was inside her but changed my mind ranger definately inside  then  looks like anne maries old wheelhouse against quay maerered outside far end lifebelt at back dowler might come up with something he is a lot older
    Seem to remember you and brian in school same time as me JT is younger. Boat inside the Ranger doesn't seem to have a mizzen could it be the Kingfisher.
