Why is the name painted on the bows backwards on both sides ?
and on the front of the wheelhouse.

Possibly taken from a slide and scanned back to front.
Put your back to the screen, use a mirror and it'll look just fine! :)

Guilty your honour, it was posted "sideways and I flipped it round and obviously got it wrong, apologies to the poster.

Actually I was just testing to see if everyone was awake LOL.

Glad to see you folks sorted the photo! Working away at weekends clearing the fish hold at the moment - about to take out old diesel tanks and replace with plastic. Also pricing diesel generators - that will be the next purchase! Discovered literally tons of stone and pig iron ballast in stern - probably dating from when the steel trawling gear was fitted. Time and money are the only constraints! Cheers from St.Andrews. AG

The stones and pig iron are the ballast whatever you do do NOT throw this away remove if you need to to check the hull but please put it back or the stern will be raised too far and the stability of the ship put at serious risk.

Ballast isn't put in without good reason and would have been put in when she was built so its integral to her design.

LOL no Martha its called a tidal harbour , the boats dry out every tide. Helps keep the bottoms of the boats clean(er) as the algae dries out in the summer and falls off.
