Spoke with a friend, Peter at Gourdon who remembers these boats. Said that Boy Allan belonged to James Criggie whilst there, had an 88 Kelvin and was sold on to Dunbar 1962ish, where she was renamed Trio. Looking in 1971 Olsens, Trio was LH441 and owned William Brunton, Dunbar. Young Ronnie or Jonah will probably fill you in on Dunbar details. Peter thinks that builder was Tyrells of Arklow.
Golden Dawn only at Gourdon short time, not even sure if ever actually worked from there, 152 Gardner, owned by Wesley Davidson. Sold on to Ireland, with owner being accompanied by John Cargill (due to having a ticket). John was a survivor of the Titanic.
