    must be a pretty early use of car tyres as fenders, they'd never throw them away back in those days which i assume is between the wars, 1920's? i'm no expert but would tyres not have been wider in the late 30's or do i just watch too many old films? cracking pic, i've seen pics of similiar craft in angus martin's books and i think i recall that family name being mentioned in the ringnet fishermen book, having a run in with the authorities up loch fyne? back in the 19th century, long time since i last read the book but i think its the same name even if not the same family.
    Not sure of the year I notice she is registered in Tarbert, Ardrishaig was originally the port of registry AG
    Don't know which year it changed to TT

    I think that it was about 1902 and the BA registry started at the same time.

    Yes, TT reg took over from AG in late 1902.
