Alexander Budge's Picture Of The Superb & First Boy Andrew

 

Alexander Budge says, "This photograph shows my Grandad's boat "The Superb" beside the first "Boy Andrew".  At that time The Superb was still registered to Aberdeen so it has A611.  this picture is important because it shows how fishing boats have to shop their home port and a number.  My Grandad's boat became "The Superb and was WK432.  Most fishermen at the harbour always called it "The Super Bee"!
