Aye,got it nicky,I was on board after she had her full shelter deck,and also when she was a bit better varnished.
Still brings back memories,cramped on the sidedeck,and the pond was no wider than your legs,and you had to scoop fish forward to get it boxed up........oooooooohhhhhhh,those were the days,lol.
Cheers,

Gary.

Skipper of this boat almost got arrested in the late 1980's. The EU fisheries commisioner was having a look around Peterhead fishmarket and the Skipper of the Jasper emptied a full bucket of freezing water sea water over the guys head lol

Probably get locked up as a "terrorist" nowadays for doing that lol

Nicky,
What name is she under on FAFB.
She towed aright when I was onboard,strong sturdy wee boat.
But that was around 17-18 year ago.
