Silver Lining

Silver Lining

Lying in Maidens. 1971. Last boat to use harbour full time.

    Fincutter,  Where was she built she has very nice lines at the bow looks like a good sea boat?
    Built in Fairlie in 1950 Alan. You can see a quarter on shot in the harbours gallery in Maidens harbour.
    Great boat through the weather but would roll you out over.
    fine old boat howard, many a day spent rolling about clyde in that one. The new wheelhouse you put on her in carradale is still at the heritage centre in the village, needing a good scrape and a varnish
    can u mind the day awn that we were steaming for clonaig slip with her? :smitten:
