    Ferry looks like the Hebrides or the Columba as you said.
    Heb ended up on south coast as Devonian for Tor Bay Seaways
    Any names of the fishing boats?
    MacBraynes boat could also be the  Clansman which was the one that went to Devon -supposed to run a service to Jersey but I dont think it lasted too long.
    If not Clansman its the Columba now Heb. Princess or Hebrides. Columba was Oban to Craigienure Boat,Hebrides Uig to Harris and LochMaddy.

    Hi Dave.....think Clansman went to Malta Gozo
    She was the ferry that visited the Thames for a Scottish exhibition, later lengthened and used on Arran run.
    Must admit more into the Clyde than West Highland steamers/ferries so not as into the detail as you are.
    Hope your boat ok and ready for a busy summer season.
    Calum  Northern Dawn on the slip..Fair Morn...Mary Manson with white fenders on her stem...at her stern Arctic Star changing over to go to the ringnet..red boat Fragrance..Maggie McLeman...Scotia...across the jetty Arctic Moon the green stem you can see.. Ferry Clansman, on the seat Big Alan Donnie the Gov and wee Donnie the gov Nan Smith.

    Don't forget. White smoke means a new Pope. Black smoke means they're still burning the Hard Drives.
