I've been watching this and found it interesting in places and hugely boring in others. Look forward to the landing craft one though! is it on tonight?

Don't worry about missing them - they appear to be repeated every other day! A couple are on again this weekend for about the fourth time.

The Reaper ,a herring fifie is on tonight , sould be a good one this boat was built over a century ago and still on the go now ,some ,pictures of her leaving Portree last year ,was good to see her in the flesh and built by Forbes Sandhaven ,but not the biggest as said in the telly papers, that goes to the Morning  Star which was built in Rosehearty by Taylors just along the coast

Those masts on Reaper really are mega chunks of timber.
"Pickle" featured in one of the programmes is for sale. 350,000 if you're interested.
