Hopeman Boats 1960s
On the way out to the fishing grounds
just off Arran - Jeam Sutherland on the left
The nets going over the stern. Jeam Sutherland on the port side
Another Hopeman Boat, the Dan is just about to go over.
Arran in the distance
Back to the Onward
The nerve centre of any boat
Echo Sounder and just visible on the right is the Deca Navigator, 3 channel I think.
Radio, I used to be able to listen to the boats out in the Clyde on my radio at home
To the left is the Direction Finder, it picked up signals from Lighthouses.
Right of it is the Compass Housing, it let day light in from above and behind it was an electric light.
Gannets over the net
Gannets take advantage
Not a bad catch, there was a small Halibut
in amongst this catch.
