There are three boats up there at Salen. One showed the name 'Mint' under the paintwork. Apparently she was also 'Wistaria OB327' and 'Starosta BF300'. She worked out of Burghead at one time as a prawn boat. Her last name was Elsie May. She was built by Watt of Banff about 50 years ago.
The other two boats lying at the pier are 'Pavonia WK53' , (alongside), a 1955 Patterson built boat also of Banff and behind her is 'Girl Claire B8' built in Fraserburgh in 1957.
