Hildona was the first Halmatic 36 (GRP hull built by Halmatic at factory in Kirkwall) originally owned by the late Billy Rendall from Stronsay.

Still fishing from Stromness owned by Billy Seatter.

The Lady Margaret was built by Duncan's yard in Burray for Davy Scott originally from Eday now retired in Burray after years as skipper on the Orkney Towage tugs.

The Bon Ami was similar but built at the same yard as Yarmouth "Viking" Mackay's in Stromness (Arthur Sinclair proprietor at that time) she was built for Johno and Jimmy Flett of Papa Westray

The owner of Viking also had another clinker boat of a similiar size called "Glenda Margaret" which had a canoe stern. I don't know where she was built.
