    Yes indeed it is the ex Ardent WK 55.
    id say good job the drug squad wasnt about when that thing came into port,am sure thats the same boat i seen in jamaca last year full of rasters smoking yon long looking cigaretes we the queer smell
    Dinna think it's the same boat bfsanders,the Ardent belongs to a doctor who's practice is in Orkney,he belongs tae Macduff or roond that way,George Mackay his name is.
    www.wkboats.co.uk has her details  She was built by Reekie of Anstruther owned for years by the Malcolm family in Wick

    Astonishingly, she's just recently left Muirtown Basin, bound for Manchester ... yes, Manchester. That's what the Muirtown lockies tell me. A couple of months ago she was being patched up, I presumed to ensure she stayed afloat in her berth ... not leave!
    Then, suddenly she was gone ... and under her own power, I was told
    Anyone know if she made it to the Mersey, even?
    The  guy who bought her spent some time recaulking and then set off.  She apparently made it no problem.
