    'Trawler in Danger in calm water...' by Alastair Beaton
    'An Aberdeen trawler was in danger of sinking early today - in the calm waters of Aberdeen harbour.
    For the May Day that a crewman sent out in the early hours came from a phone box at the city's Fish Market, where the vessel had berthed the previous day. Aberdeen firemen were called in shortly after 1am today to pump out the fish-hold of the trawler, the Strathclova (A734), after a deckhand, Mr Robert Maver returned to collect some gear from the vessel and found she had a pronounced list and was lying very low in the water. Robert (22), 3/5 Chapel Street, Keith, has been with the vessel since she was launched two years ago. The Strathclova returned yesterday from an eight-day trip to the West Coast, and the nine-man crew went ashore later. All the other crewmen - including Skipper, Alexander Simpson, 39 Gordon Street - come from Buckie. She had in her flooded hold a catch of 420 boxes of white fish - worth upwards of £4000, pointed out Robert - to be landed at today's market. But it is feared that most, if not all, the fish has been ruined. With the trawler lying almost down to her scuppers - it is believed that the flooding was caused by a fault in her pumps - the vessel was in real danger of sinking before firemen arrived to pump her out.'
    Capsized 18th February 2001 , in Marin Spain. Constructive total loss but not scrapped till late 2006

    'Trendy Trawler' by Jim Kinnaird
    'A Peterhead skipper's girlfriend launched her husband-to-be's new command - the seiner-trawler Salamis at Aberdeen yesterday.
    The 86ft boat, built at the Torry shipyard of John Lewis & Sons Ltd., was sent smartly on her way to the sea by Miss Anne Mair, who is to wed skipper Thomas Milne, jun., on June 1st.
    Anne, a secretary-typist at Crosse & Blackwell's Peterhead factory, is herself a fisherman's daughter. She swung the traditional bottle against the bows in fine style - and was rewarded with a gold watch as a memento, handed over by the shipyard’s managing director, Mr James S. Smith.
    Skipper Milne's partners in the venture are his brothers Adam, George and Alexander and Bruce's Stores (Aberdeen) Ltd. His present boat is the wooden-hulled Starella, which is to be taken over by his father. Skipper Milne said he had decided to go for the larger steel vessel because this class of ship was needed to meet the trend in fishing today. Salamis is an up-dated version of the Torry-built Peterhead seiner-trawlers Seringa and Sundari, which have proved highly successful vessels. She should be ready for service next month and will be equipped for both white fish and herring catching. The vessel is designed for starboard side trawling and for seining and an additional gallows is fitted to the port side aft to enable her to go pair trawling. Like many of the new seiners in service, rope bins are fitted at the forward end of the fishroom - a safety feature which eliminates the need for coiling ropes. The fishroom itself has a capacity of 120 cu. metres and is completely insulated and lined on sides, bulkheads and deckhead. It is arranged for carrying fish boned at sea and can be rearranged for bulk fishing. The Salamis' main engine is a 636bhp Mirlees Blackstone with bridge control. Provision is made to operate it at 240rpm while seining.'

All lives saved thanks to a British Airways helicopter, with a volunteer crew, from their base at Sumburgh Airport, which winched the crew to safety within hours of the grounding, at the request of Alec Webster, Coastguard Station Officer, Lerwick. This proved the value of helicopters for rescue operations, and may well have been the example needed for the formation of today’s coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Sumburgh Airport

    "Budding Rose PD 84 built in Lewis Shipyard Aberdeen
    In early 1973 after a period when my father was repeatedly asked to go relief skipper in different boats including William Morgan’s Sundari, after visiting the John Lewis shipyard in Aberdeen with William Morgan (who’s new vessel Sundari was building at the time) my father decided to build a new vessel in partnership with the Don fishing company with John Stephen as mate, and Walter Strachan as engineer. In the summer of 1974 while waiting for his new vessel to be completed my father went relief skipper of the Boy Andrew Wk174 working the seine-net very successfully South-east of Peterhead.
    On October 4th 1974 at Lewis Shipyard in Aberdeen the 84 foot steel seine-net trawler Budding Rose PD84 was launched. My father fished the herring pair trawl at the west coast grounds, and the seine-net out of Peterhead. In 1975 he was joined by my brother James, and then in 1977 by my brother Peter'
