    Last time I saw her was in 20 02, lying in that same place. Glad tae see that she,s still on the go, though obviously nae workin. S poke to her skipper/owner that time as well, I think he was at one time chairman o the Shetland Fisherman,s Association, but nae sure.
    Anybody know the history of this boat size where built and when, always interested to know about the boats posted, as it is more interesting to know what is behind the photo.
