Built by Forbes of Sandhaven, for the Anderson’s of Dunure, to ring net for herring on the Clyde

 

1980’s

Converted to trawl for prawns [scampi!], fishing out of Tarbert Loch Fyne and out west to Colonsay

 

2005

Bought by Donald, to be converted to a 12 + 2 coded cruiser, maintaining in good part, the look and feel of a traditional larch-on-oak Scottish fishing boat
