            Alexander Budge's Grandfather's boat "Rose In June" showing the open nature of earlier boats

 

Alexander Budge says,"This picture shows my great Grandad Tom Budge's boat "Rose In June" in the dry dock at Wick.  It is important because it shows how fishing boats looked after the last war.  The decks of the boat are still quite open.  Deck covers are a more recent thing.
