Hi Derek,

Sadly I have not done a painting of the "Chrysolite" yet. I had intended to include one of her in the Duff House exhibition this last summer, but somehow she got left out in favour of...

Thanks for that, Gil.

I remember the boat well, but I wasn't sure about her early ownership, except that I thought it was a partnership from Hamister, Whalsay, Shetland.

Thanks for the details, and...

Once again, I need to pick the brains of the SN stalwarts!

Museum Photographic Archive

Here's a tip for you, Dave.

When you go into the Shetland Museum Photographic Archive, go to the "Show All" option, rather than for any of the individual collections. That way, you get to see...

There's another photograph of her at the same place as I found that one, probably taken the same day by the same photographer, only a little closer in and more bow-on.

Thank you so much for your help.

That certainly filled in the gaps, as far as the 1950s vessels are concerned.

If I can be of any help to you, let me know, through these columns or through my...
