Hello

Hi
My name is Chris Malkin, i own an old Ringnet fishing boat called Shemaron , she was built for the Sloan family of Maidens in1949 by Weatherheads as Wistaria BA64 , we have rebuilt the engine partly renailed the hull re installed the masts etc etc etc etc , she is a great boat to own and use , we are trying to keep her as original as possible and work continues to that end , this is a great site
Chris

Shemaron

Lovely model, couple of images may be seen in the Trawler Photos site. The ring-net boats were a classic build and hard-working boats. Well done for preserving this one (ex-WISTARIA BA 64) and best of luck with her!
