Diligent returns to Caithness


The Wick Society has acquired an unique, Stroma-built fishing boat to add to the collection of historical vessels managed by the Boat Section.  Built by George Simpson, North End, Stroma,  this line/creel fishing boat was launched in 1912. The Diligent is thought to be the only surviving example of only four boats designed with a distinctive elliptical stern.  

The Diligent is due to arrive at Wick during April 2014.   More details to follow.
