    Built for Willie Dickson's uncle Willie McCaffer at Dickies of Tarbert

    No new wheelhouse on her Johnie, she was lost up about Calgary Bay late 50's
    was this the boat that the Evelin replaced or was there one inbetween

    Evelyn replaced her Johnnie about 1955 I think
    Dickies built a fine looking boat did they build a lot of fishing boats and did they build many for local men

    Great yacht builders Johnnie, there was an Endeavour for CN around the same time as GG, launch pic is on here.
    MTB's during the war, mostly 40 footers after the bigger ringers, Nancy Glen, Destiny and Kirsteen Anne in the 60's
    just talking with xander about the picture,he was saying that it looks more like a yacht than a fishing boat,when did the yard stop building fishing boats john
