Another memory. As a lad I went to the herring fishing one night on the Barbara McKay. Jimmy Bremner (Fisher Boy ) had her for a short time and took her to the low-shore fishing. We shot off Lybster. During the night they sent me below with a bucket in which to be sick. The boat rolled and I went head first into the bucket and cut my nose. It should have discouraged me but, unfortunately, did not.
