Hi John. That's a great picture with plenty of action going on. Is it the same Rosehaugh as in the earlier picure I put on? The stern looks different to me. All the best.

Hi John.
My husband just explained that she only looks different because of the angle the photo's been taken from and because she's sitting a bit deeper in the water.
On the Trawler Photos website someone mentioned they thought part of her eventually ended up in a Pub garden at Pittenweem. Do you know if that's correct?
I have a good photo that Alister Jack sent me of her on the beach being worked on. I'll check with him if it's O.K before I post it here.
all the very best
