    WK 176 looks like a real veteran, any idea on the date of the photo or the age of the boat?

    During her time in Wick/Scrabster she paired with Raymond Ross`s Avalon III WK 343, Alvidra Elaine WK111 & the late Graham(Hartley) Smith`s Bonaventure INS 325.
    She was sold around 1996/97 as Liam & Shortie retired

    Many thanks Peter for the information, thought she must be a little elderly looking at the design although would have put her older than you have. Was she a traditional style that continued into the last century?
