this boat might be the Margret and Dennis built in Seahouses for Dougie Clark
of Cullercoats and fished out of North Shields, until sold away.

Hamnavoe,

Doubt it....This boat was built in Scotland by Walter Reekie or Millers of St Monans. Keelboats from NE England all carry a look of a coble in their lines while this boatie doesn't. I would lay money on her being built somewhere on the Firth of Forth for an LH Ringer Skipper.

Trawldoor,
I said it might be the Margret and Dennis simply because after Dougie Clark sold her, he kept an eye on were she ended up ( at different ports ) and he (who had it built) said the boat in the schoolyard at St Abbs was his old boat the Margret and Dennis that was the only reason I posted saying what I said.

Hamnavoe,

No offence meant or mockery of your knowledge intended. Just thought my tuppenceworth would be of interest. At the end of the day my opinion might just be a lot of bo**ocks, especially if the man who had her built says so !!
