I have just had some great news about an old fishing vessel owned by my father and his brother. MYRTLE has been bought by a member of this forum and the good news is she is to be restored by him and his partner. she is due to go into dry dock in Beverly Humberside next week. I wish them all the best in this venture. It's so good to hear that someone is helping to keep these old fishing boats afloat after all the news of decommissioning of fishing vessels of late. My thanks goes to TRAWLER PHOTOS as it was through them I received this information. Many thanks Bruce Buchanan

Thanks, Bruce, that's about the same time that they built Celtic, now called Bruces, which lies at Charlestown, Fife.

Hi Grahamtowa,
The Bruces is still moored in Charlestown. I was along there a few weeks ago. The next time I go along I will take a photo and post it. Bruce B

hi Fairlie,
I was informed a few months ago that Myrtle had sank at her mooring on the river Hull. This has not been confirm. Any one with any news about Myrtle can you please let me know.
