The first purpose-built ship for fishery protection duties was the 1898-built BRENDA (I), she named after Brenda, the daughter of Magnus Troil, the Chief Laird of the Shetlands in bygone days, 'Brenda' also appearing in Sir Walter Scott’s novel "The Pirate".
Of 174 grt, 12 nrt, she was built by J Reid & Co Ltd of Glasgow and measured 125 x 21 x 10 feet and had a 3-cylinder, 750 ihp triple expansion engine, constructed by Hall-Brown Buttery & Co, Glasgow, which gave her a speed of 12˝ knots.
Requisitioned by The Royal Navy for service as an examination vessel in 1914, she returned briefly to fishery protection duties in 1919 but had to be withdrawn from service for the installation of a new boiler in 1920, a task that saw her out of service for a full year.
In 1939 she was again requisitioned by The Royal Navy and served as an examination vessel in The Firth of Forth until returning to fishery protection work in 1946. She was withdrawn from service and broken up in 1951.

Alongside what were known as the American Shed's, a relative use to be the Crane Driver of the crane on the left. When we were up there visiting the Scottish branch as a child I would sit with him in his Cab and watch him at work, wouldn't be allowed these day's I suppose.
