She was built at Macduff in Scotland as the Transcend BCK 75,i think there is a image of her on this site somewhere.Go to the vintage sector and type in Transcend and you will see a photo of her being launched when new

She was in Oban around the late70s or early80s, called Intrepid,and owned by an ex Fraserburgh man Alec John Downie(his brother had the FR Emerald) I think he got her from the Channel Islands.A 95 Gardner in her,replaced in SH by a 150 gardner.Remember her in the early 70s at the sprats at Inverness,think she was BCK then.Alec John sold her to SH sometime in the80s.Not a lot of info but something.Regards to you.

She's potting out of Bridlington at the moment, shouldn't be much trouble finding her as most of Bridlingtons potting fleet don't go out for much more than twenty four hours. Normally, they'll leave early in the moring and return sometime in between two and seven in the afternoon.

The 'hole in the side 'was the removal of 2 planks with worm in and 3 which were worn thin.She is now in the Trent at the roses' wharf.Photos to follow soon.

Spent many school holidays on this boat when she was netting on wrecks and trawling from SH in the 80's. Her crew back then was, Walter Crawford, Bill Jenkinson and Julian Barker. Brings back some treasured memories seeing the pictures.

I've not seen Brian Cox for many years until last week on Sky News!!!
