Hi you two, I am sure I have seen this boat down in Blyth, pinching all the good English prawns, some boys you scots lads, owt for nowt!.
Anyway it just jogged my memory that my ex wifes grandfather was skipper of the drifter "The Vine" Maybe you old timers will know of him a guy called James Murray I cant remember his tee-name though.

She was KY reg.but it was men from Amble that owned her when you saw her in Blyth.
Yep that's right enough. She was built early seventies at Millers of St. Monans for Redford & Billy Armstrong of Amble. Then as the years went by their sons Chris & Frank respectively, worked the boat. Spent many happy hours aboard her as a teenager when she was first built.

I've got some good pictures of her entering Amble with swell on - I'll see if I can dig them out and post them.
