Brighter Dawn LK-47

Trying to find some more info on the Brighter Dawn Lk47 - launched 1949 as "Barbara Mackay" W9, 1956 bought by Walter Inkster renamed "Brighter Dawn" LK47; purchased in 1972 by Lerwick Harbour Trust as pilot boat "Bard”. Would like to know where built, loa, gross tonnage and engine size/details. Also any history of her time before being sold to Shetland and where she is now - left Shetland to an English buyer in 1992. Hoping someone can help - thanks John
