Sorry Wullie It was the Loch Fyne in the picture It was one you put in the ports and harbours section of Thurso 1950
The Hopeful was built in Forbes Sandhaven in 1934 Keel 47.5ft LOA 52ft Beam 15.3 ft and draft 6.3 ft 22.56 Tonns Gross and Nett She was previously INS 69 when Wullie Simpson bought her 21/1/1953 and she was sold to John Davidson of Shapinsay 21/10/1962
