Aquarius INS286

Traditional wooden seiner Aquarius, INS 286, arriving Oban, mid 80's. Altough retro fitted with 'shelters', still had lovely lines.

A long gone fleet of similar designs with inspiring names:- Harmony, Alert, Faithful, Eminent, Strathnairn, etc, etc

brings back memories of the many years I fished out of Oban and of the other skippers and crews who worked there(days long gone by) They were one of the happiest times of my life.The Aquarius was one of the boats that I part owned and skippered
