“Watchful” in dry dock - Ayr
A lasting tribute to the fishermen from Ayrshire who were lost at sea.
As you can see the vessel is now unmarked, uncared for and in poor condition. Even her
name and number have either faded or been vandalised.
“Watchful” was built in 1955 or so.
She was a ring-net herring boat until decommissioned in around 1995.
Number BA124 she was registered at Ballantrae and sailed from Maidens.
