    Jim Todd(Toddie)from Newhaven had her when she went ashore at Sheep.I'm sure it was thick as a dyke that day and his electrics had packed in.Hughie McIntyre used to pump that yin oot a puckle o' times at the old South pier ower the weekend when they were away hame.I wouldnae say she lecked like a herring basket,but she sure as hell wisnae ticht !!
    When she was in TT Ronnie she she was kept in great condition, but I seen her after she
    was sold and she was a bit rough looking , the clams was a sore job on the wooden boats

    Toddie did well with her,but as you say George,the clams was hellish sore on them.He put a new wheelhouse on no that long before he lost her.A bonny big skiff she was too,could toddle on wi' the 114 in her.
    If I mind right Ronnie the wheelhouse was saved and went on another boat which I think ran ashore west side Mull!
