Coull Joins the Anstruther Fleet

Anstruther’s third skiff, “Coull D.”, was launched on Sunday 11 May 2014.  The skiff is named after Coull Deas MBE, skipper of the Reaper for many years and a stalwart of the Scottish Fisheries Museum Boats Club, which helps to look after the museum collection.  Coull D. is the 59th skiff to be launched in the UK. Coull then rowed in Coull D. from the stroke seat, coxed by David Tod of the Scottish Fisheries Museum.  It does prove that age is no barrier to having a happy time in a rowing skiff.  Coull is aged 89.






The full list of St Ayles skiffs can be found on the Craft Register.  Coull joins “Chris o’Kanaird” (00) and “St Ayles” (11) in the Anstruther collection.  All photos from Ian Mills, thanks Ian.

    Great photos of Dad, think we’ll have him in the next ‘novice’ team?
