Description

This illustrated history presents Alexander Noble & Sons Ltd of Girvan, the South Ayrshire shipbuilders, and their vessels. Founded in 1946, the shipyard is still operational today, unusual amongst many of its counterparts in the Scottish shipbuilding industry. After relating the yard's founding, with unparalleled access to the companies' archives, the authors outlay in detail all the ships constructed by Nobles. Every fishing boat in the fleet is accompanied with a history and photograph and the collection includes the intriguing and popular ring-net vessels. With technical information and details of every boat's ultimate fate, as well as information on Nobles' non-fishing boats and their remarkable salvage/repair operations, this carefully researched book will fascinate fishing boat enthusiasts and locals alike.
