So I am taking my new to me boat Bonnie Lass south from La Rochelle in Biscay around the Atlantic coast and in to the med the final port for this trip being Soller in Mallorca. On route we will be doing apart from keeping the water out a survey of marine life on route to help rase the awarenes of our arrival as a important vessel in inshore marine conservation, well up to 60 miles. She is a 1949 Weatherhead ringer and great to see her live on. If the reports and photo form the trip would be welcomed here let me know. Best to all Pete

Is this the boat that was owned by a French maritime museum? Think she was probably the last fishing boat built at the Cockenzie yard before Wm Weatherheads went bust in 1953.
