Fishery Patrol Vessel ST OSWALD
« on: October 26, 2012, 10:05:03 PM »

...Hi Guys...
 
I have just returned from a short holiday in the Berwick Upon Tweed area and would like some information on a vessel that i saw in Eyemouth harbour...
 
She is called ST OSWALD and is a Fisheries Patrol Vessel...
 
I would like to build a model of this vessel so plans & pictures would come in handy...
 
...Best Regards...Norry...

Norry - just a short vid here from you tube of her down on the Tyne. Regularly see her off the coast
but she hasn't been into Amble yet that I am aware.

Here is a picture of ST OSWALD on the slipway at Eyemouth Harbour last week.
The painters were just about to start the signwriting on the wheelhouse and hull...
