Borgin FD 516

Several of this type of 'mini-smacks' were built on the Faeroes around WW1. This one, 15 grt, built in Tórshavn in 1921 by L.D. #who is he?#. Ex Trúgvi, Fram.

Rolf, the only boat in my notes with number FD 516 is Borðoyanes, built by Lauritz Debes (L.D.) in 1912. Can you see the name Borgin on the original photo?

I have the info from Almanakkin 1984.
But in Almanakki 1873 there is an Bordoyarnes FD 516 (11 GRT) with Ganmma engine. Built in th in 1912 by LD.
In same Almanak, same page, there is a Brandur FD 553 (Ex Erik), built in Torshavn 1921 by LD (GRT 15) with a RR motor 140 HP from 1966. This corresponds exactly to my above mentioned Borgin.
So?
