japottinger, I must take another look at her, but to me she doesnt look old.... yes old style , but in very good order, heavily built, no name to be seen showing on her, and lain in the yard at least 2 years .... a boat like that should be afloat and getting used, even the nice varnish is starting to deteriorate.....

Slightly odd with the bulwark stanchions on the outside, possibly added to stiffen. Will dig out my shot of Veng taken at Kilcreggan in mid 1960's

Looking at my shot of Venga there are significant differences. Will try some of the Shetland lads for ident.

Her name is Svengali, but not sure of spelling thats how it sounds, and the yard boys think she is Shetland built as well..

May be built by Ian Richardson Boat Builder Stromness, Orkney?

A bit strange that the SVENGALI has venga in it and Jim Pottingers pic is of the veng.. or venga.... wonder if theres a connection, but the one here is definately a much newer boat than J, P's picture

There is a Richardson, Stromness, built boat on this site, called Jo Contesto...... she is similar, but also a lot of differences......
