With the gradual phasing out of wooden fishing boats of Scotland it is timely to record some of these handsome vessels. In the years from 1960–80 boat builders produced some of their most shapely and graceful craft, a testament to the skill of both the builders and designers. Initially the designs were a collaboration of builders and skippers, but later the implementation of statutory rules demanded a more structured approach by qualified naval architects, which inevitably resulted in a certain degree of standardisation. James A. Pottinger’s new illustrated volume concentrates solely on the graceful wooden boats, large and small, regarded by many to be the best looking boats of all. Many boats are photographed at sea, while other views range from repairs being carried out to the more melancholy sight of beautiful craft being cut up. Boats were once scrapped only due to old age, but sadly political factors now often dictate the destruction of the classic wooden craft included here.

The boatbuilding industry has always had its ups and downs, reflecting the changing fortunes of the fishing industry. Campbeltown Shipyard diversified its boatbuilding activities in order to survive but competition from foreign yards moved into a new dimension from the mid-1990s onwards. In addition, decommissioning, restricted days at sea, and shrinking quotas have left the Scottish fleet a shadow of its former self. However, by the middle of the first decade of the 21st century, things were beginning to look up for the remaining vessels, including several survivors of the boats built by Campbeltown Shipyard. Today the empty buildings which once comprised the shipyard betray no trace of the hive of activity which once existed there and produced some of the most successful fishing vessels ever built in Scotland, yet with former boats still turning impressive performances, the fishing industry will long remember the fishing boats of Campbeltown Shipyard.

AFTER the end of hostilities in 1945, the fishing industry was quick to establish some semblance of recovery and a surge of new builds and restoration of Admiralty motor fishing vessels soon followed. In Fraserburgh, on Scotland’s east coast, several established yards satiated this desire amongst the fishing-boat owners for new craft. Thus it wasn’t surprising that a new yard sprung up at the end of the 1940s when three local apprentices from one of the yards decided to set up their own boatbuilding yard on the breakwater, in what was a very exposed position. And so the yard of Thomas Summers & Co. was born, a yard that became synonymous with fine seaworthy fishing boats suited to various methods of fishing. In the space of just thirteen years they produced eighty-eight fishing vessels and their output was more prolific than most of the other Scottish boatyards. Many of these boats survive to this day, some still working as fishing vessels, and others converted to pleasure, a testament to their superb design and solid construction. Here, Mike Smylie recounts the story of Thomas Summers & Co. through historic records and personal memories of both fishermen and family members, with many striking photographs of the boats they built.
