Hugh Seatter's boat

Hughies boat as it lay then. She was a lovely boat when he came to Houton in the 60's and 70's

I have been told the Seaflower was built by Duncans of Burray for Alan Pirrie. She was taken by road to Houton and launched by a small crane and fell bursting her side and had to go back to Burray for repair.
Alan fished with her and also did some hiring, dont know if Hughie bought her from Alan or was she owned by someone between.
I'm afraid it looks as if she is in her last resting place! Although some boats have been restored from a worse state.
