Jo and John Furley write:
‘Responding to William Miller’s appeal for information, here are some recent photos of Spindrift.
‘We bought her in Guernsey in August, had her repainted and re-caulked, and we are trying to get her to Liverpool, where we’ll keep her in the Albert Dock once we’ve done some improvement work. We got as far as Penzance before the weather turned against us – the latest pictures are in the harbour in Penzance, waiting for a weather window (which is firmly closed at the moment!).
‘We’d be very happy to get in contact with the Millers to learn more about her history, and to update them.

William Miller has been in touch to ask whether anyone has recent photos of the very striking fishing vessel Spindrift, which his father bought from Lossiemouth in 1947 (it was then name Rose). The splendid photos above are from William’s family collection.
If you have any shots from recent years, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll forward them to William.
Spindrift was sold by the Wick-based Miller family in 1975.
