another local fleet – the A-Team consisting of the —

Argosy —

Boats6

Academus —

Boats4

Aztec —

Boats5

and the Argonaut line the harbour wall while storms rage in the west of Scotland —

Boats7

Arcturus – the latest addition to the ‘A’ Team —

Boats11

is being fitted out at the harbour wall —

Boats9

and the blue capped wheelhouse of the tiny Argo shellfish suction dredge can be seen through the gear and railings of the two bigger boats if you squint hard enough —

Boats10

while again on the outside is the visiting Vikingborg —

Boats1

and as ever – the spick n span Susan Bird at the head of the line —
