Grant for Reaper refit announced

An important step forward in the planned refit of Reaper, the Museum’s 1903 Fifie Herring Drifter, was made on Friday 5th August 2017 when Fiona Hyslop MSP, the Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs came aboard Reaper to announce that the Scottish Government have awarded the Museum a grant of £500,000 to enable the refit of the boat to go ahead.

Plans for Reaper forge ahead

This coming year promises to be another important and interesting year for Reaper, as the long-planned major refit is organised and planned to ensure that she can continue to play her outreach role for Scotland’s fishing communities.
