Was this not one of the boats built at Berwick on lines of fishing boats?

There was a similar looking yacht in Inverkip marina recently, but had a blue hull, and had red and white stripes down the hull , same as Briggs marine display, wonder was it their personal yacht, anybody know?

If you look at my other photos you will see another beauty claimed to belong to Briggs I think.

Yes Jimmy, this is the one that Angus Sinclair in Orkney had , I spoke to the owner from Plockton when he sailed her into Castlebay,Barra this summer, and he said it came from Orkney and was in superb condition!!

Cheers [ barrahead ], only thing now , is the spelling of her name correct, as it used to be Orcades, but Orcadus on this posting, I feel it will just be a typing error ..............
