Aye but James Smith would have had her by the time this photo was taken and I think Falconer Smith had her after James. James did well with her, one of the few boats to take the trophy of off Jaspers Strathyre.

What would the health and safety say today Blues old Charlie Mckenzie walking roon on a single plank painting on his numbers. Pears and Ginger Dawson doon below with the bottom paint. Jackie Farquar drinking tea in the insurance office wi Dennis and John Fleetwood doing the P&J crossward. A day in the life of Lossie slip.
There was a boat called the Clover Jim that fell off that end slip when I was a youngster and she was so rotten that they did not bother to put her back on they just cut her up for scrap.Was she owned by the same people as the Goodwiil Jim.

Aye that's right Robbie and you forgot Billy Boy Tarzan as well. The Clover was owned by Billy ? (can't mind his second name now) but he lived next door to Big Bill in the street at the right hand side of the Square on the corner of Dunbar Street. He then got the Goodwill and then one that began with T Trust or something like that. Did real well at the flukes always had a few lemons in amongst his plaice. I remember his brother and Bun Wilmie were aboard with him.

Robbie,

I mind fine of the Clover falling off the slip, aye, thats right she was broken up at that wee bittie next to the slip, right hand side of the Kathyrn. I think the Clover was broken up about 1967, seems to come to mind, thats right the Goodwill was the replacement.

Georgie, Dunbar St is no where near the square,(Cloud) LOL your all wondered, more like James St, I cant mind either of Billy's last name.

The Clovers number was INS204(Thumb)

Blues, Jim, Billy that had the trust was Billy Campbell. He lived in a hoose in argyle St, next one along from the square. I know as I now live in it. Billy passed away a few years ago.
