Today’s #throwbackthursday we take to the seas with Danny Brand, a fisherman from Angus, to share a sweet story of childhood nostalgia aboard our beautiful pilot boat.

We were pleased to hear from local fisherman, Danny Brand recently, when he got in touch to share his memories…

‘From age eleven I spent a lot of time helping with maintenance jobs and making new improvements to the boat , usual things were painting , and cleaning and hosing down the deck to stop the planks from drying out in the summer. Jobs like this were always really interesting to me as a young lad , but the highlight of all was when the boat would go to Arbroath to be put on the slipway. I’d usually get to go on the sail and go up the slip if I was off school and would always get to go to sail to the Arbroath sea fest which was the highlight of my boating year as a boy, especially as they let me steer most of the way’

Back in the 1950s, the boat was known as The Newcraig. She was built in St Monans, Fife and began life as a pilot boat transporting mariners to and from ships in the open sea.

Used to promote the Murray McDavid brand today, the Murray McDavid boat is moored in the heart of Glasgow sitting next to the Riverside Museum and lying alongside Glasgow’s tall ship ‘The Glenlee’. Over the years, we have hosted many events onboard and the boat is available for whisky tastings, trips on the River Clyde and out to the ‘Whisky Isles’ on the West Coast of Scotland.

Thank you Danny for sharing your stories and wonderful pictures. A bottle is on its way to you!

If anyone has any similar stories to share, we would love to hear from you!
