    Hi all, I'm looking for photos of the Gratitude that was moored at Granton Harbour, Edinburgh.

    Can't remember when it was moored there but was a long time ago.

    Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    Hi there The Gratitude was LH28 and was owned by the Wilson family from Newhaven. she sailed for many years from Newhaven at the sprats, & Herring.
    She lay a wreck on Kerrara near Oban, but I am now informed that she has been salvaged and converted to a pleasure craft. Sorry I do'nt know where, but see Jonah, or young Ronnie,they may be able to help.

    Dear Shoreheid

    Many thanks for the great photo taken at a very peaceful looking Newhaven. I'm hoping somebody reading this thread can provide me with some info as to what has become of the gratitude. Thanks Forbes Wilson

    Look up Vintage trawlers and fishing boats messages by 'norman' , 'timbers', and '3762 dazzer'. The latter details where boat is now. That must be special.

    Also look at Herring ring netters ' frank stacey' his photo looks to be the same boat with the dates being about right, ie early 30's. Good luck in your hunt.
