Eyemouth Boat Building Co

Hi, have just found this site tonight. What a great site. Am busy with a long term project researching boatyards between Gourdon (by Montrose) and Berwick on Tweed. Currently busy with Eyemouth BBC. Of the 41 fishing vessels built there, i have tracked down pics of all but two. They are 1967 build Star Divine II LH449 (later BF47), and 1969 Heatherbelle II LH27 (later Hazael FR368, then ME47). Can anyone help out with these two? cheers, Graham

Thanks, Bobby,
Jim aitchison died about a month ago, although I gather it was his brother John who had the Heatherbelle built. I spoke with Jim Vanko today, and he doesn't havea photo of Star Divine. I will try the FMA next week.Cheers

Thumbs up

hello, was it yourself who emailed the link to me? If so, that is the first Star Divine BK47,built 1955 at Eyemouth.
The one I am looking for is Star Divine II LH449, built 1967 at Eyemouth.
Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated when someone goes out of their way to help.

That's the one that I'm looking for, Alwyn. Thanks very much. I'd love a copy. The only pic i have found is of the boat a few years later, when it was Banff registered, and I wanted one with the original Leith registration.
Do you have my address or email address? I don't remember if i included it with the cd that I sent.Many thanks, Graham
