Antares, April 2019
In the yard at the moment is the Antares, a 33ft (10m) vessel built in Weymouth by Ron Berry in 1972.
She was designed as a launch on which fishing parties could be taken on trips. She was then converted and used for trawling, fishing out of Anstruther for a time, but eventually sank while working out of Methil after fastenings on her garboard strake failed.
The planking is iroko, a durable hardwood from West Africa. It is a less expensive alternative to teak, but this use of exotic hardwood for hull planking demonstrates that she was built to last.
Her deck and superstructures are missing, and while in the yard they will be reinstated in as close to the original configuration as possible.
