I am looking for 2 photos of boats built by this yard they are Saffron BA 182 built 1951 later Maid of Honour LH 120 and Selina 11 BA 333 built 1948. Later Reaper BF 396, WK 87 It does not matter which name or number is on the vessel but it would be nice to get a photo with the original name. These photos are to be used in a book to be published about the yard and therefore permission must be obtained from the photographer or who owns the copyright.

Sam was the Reaper about 35-40 feet ??? if so I think she belonged to Keiss
The best people to get a hold of would be Malcolm Bremner who is the harbourmaster at Wick and has to do with the Wick Society or Andy Anderson who is on the S N site They may be able to help
