Mike, Willie Buchan might know who he sold her to but it was a long time ago. I changed the deck to this layout, before the deck was flush across with two hatches, one forard of the engine and one aft Engine was a two cylinder Kelvin P/P

I think this skiff belonged to Arthur Burnett's daughter in Stromness for a time, probably bought it in 1972. Was sold to Stanley Wylie when he lived in Flotta and broken up at St Vincents pier (Flotta) during a storm? Wid that be inything lik right? Me memory is not too good nooadays
