This picture from Derek Rosie taken by his Dad shows an engine being taken out of the "Chance" WK 126 in 1986

 

 

Derek Rosie says, "My Dad and Grandad both worked in the boat builders at Wick.  Altogether they worked there for 44 years.  Picture taken there by my dad.  This picture shows an engine being taken out of the "Chance" (WK 126).  It is an important picture because it shows the sort of diesel engines that fishing boats had in 1986.
