Seemingly there are 5 weeks in January.

This fantastic wee mini laptop keeps me posting on this blog and writing in the forum – I look at writing on here as an extension of my fishing – I also get to look back [...]

Motor powered fishing boats appeared at the beginning of the 20th century. The first Scottish motor powered fishing boat was ‘Crystal River’ of Wick, with Eyemouth’s ‘Maggie Jane’s’ the second.
