Can anyone assist with information or photo's of A115 Radiation around the late Fifties. I believe she was a line boat out of Abberdean I have a model of her built for my mother around 1956 while my uncle was at sea in her. I'll take some photo's and upload them when time permits.

Quite about her in Gloria Wilsons book More Scottish Fishing Craft lot about her being built and dimensions of timber used. Also fair bit about her method of fishing(great lines) and her fishing grounds.

Thanks Guys for all the information supplied I'll be sure to do a bit more research. Not quite sure how it worked but I am told by my Grandmother that my Uncle owned his own lines that were shot from her and that formed part of the share.
