She had an old Kelvin when I was on her she had no gutting shelter and a pedestal power-block the winch was set for and aft the wire had to be guided on with crowbars

that would be great william cheers bud. ma uncle had the front left window of the wheelhouse blown out of her one night by a wave steaming from uig to lochmaddy. she was a grand boat going by all accounts though

My dad had thisd boat built at smith and hutton anstruther 1967 she was built with a striaght stem but was just over the 50 foot and he had to get her under the 50 foot to scienenet in the firth of fourth the boat builder tried to shave away the stem post but my grandfather was a very purticular man and made them take the stem out altogether and they put the queen mary stem in it was the whole width of the tree trunk while they were building her the yard boss would run whenever he saw my grandfather coming i have some photos of her coming down the slipway with the straight stem and 1 or 2 of her getting planked the boat and wheelhouse was admiered from miles around people still talk about her looks and good sea keeping in port seton today
