Its called growing up around this class of boats and a lot of searching thru books , photo's , etc to try and get all the info on the class. I'll be doing a website and possibly a book in 2007 about the class and i'm donating all my research to the Aberdeen Maritime Museum to update their records on these John Lewis built ships.
