With the gradual phasing out of wooden fishing boats of Scotland it is timely to record some of these handsome vessels. In the years from 1960–80 boat builders produced some of their most shapely and graceful craft, a testament to the skill of both the builders and designers. Initially the designs were a collaboration of builders and skippers, but later the implementation of statutory rules demanded a more structured approach by qualified naval architects, which inevitably resulted in a certain degree of standardisation. James A. Pottinger’s new illustrated volume concentrates solely on the graceful wooden boats, large and small, regarded by many to be the best looking boats of all. Many boats are photographed at sea, while other views range from repairs being carried out to the more melancholy sight of beautiful craft being cut up. Boats were once scrapped only due to old age, but sadly political factors now often dictate the destruction of the classic wooden craft included here.

THE coasts of Scotland are a goldmine for fishing boats new and old, and this latest selection from James Pottinger covers a huge variety of them - from early trawlers to seine net boats, to modern twin rig side and stern trawlers. As it does so, it demonstrates the changes that evolved in the design of the boats themselves, as progress marches on: the numbers of handsome wooden boats have declined, while the smaller boats have flourished, now rigging themselves for trawling, lining and shellfish catching.With over 200 photographs, many previously unpublished, Scotland's Fishing Boats is a photographic journey through time at a variety of locations around Scotland and the Isles.

Salt in the Blood traces the rise of Scotland's fishing communities and describes their present precarious position. As the book shows, the seas around the Scottish coast are fertile but winning a livelihood from them has never been easy. Over generations, the pursuit of fishing created a series of distinctive close-knit communities, with their own customs and traditions. The fishing is now centred on a few major ports and the modern skipper is often a businessman in charge of a vessel worth several million pounds: The fishing communities themselves are in a state of flux and often pervaded by a sense of grievance. The efficiency of the modern fleet and the political demands of the European Union have brought about a crisis, but it is not a situation without hope for Scotland's hunters of the sea.

ARGONAUT

David Smith is a recipient of the MBE for his services to the fishing industry. But ultimately, what emanates from the text are the personal qualities of a man whose life was dedicated to fishing.

David Smith was born in 1930 into a dynasty of fishermen. He found himself a young teenager at the end of World War II. From the most humble expectations of life, he set to work rising from his first job as a boy cook on a herring drifter to ownership of a string of the most successful inshore fishing vessels of his era. As a young skipper, David began to notch up unsurpassed catch records. He was gifted with a personal determination to be successful and in a series of his boats, all named Argonaut, David repeatedly claimed trophies for skippering the crew of the inshore vessel topping the annual grossings table throughout Scotland. His success dominated an era. David was to become something of a pioneer in the British fishing industry. He kept himself abreast of all new developments through international fishing publications. He was to make a significant contribution through the input of his own practical ideas, which helped to shape the design and development of engineered laborsaving powered equipment. His single-minded approach would lead him to seize the initiative, to show willingness to undergo testing and the courage to make changes to long-held practice. The skipper bears a heavy responsibility for his crew, and David Smith served the fishing community through assisting in the development of changes that were to make a significant difference to Scottish fishermen’s working lives, their conditions, and their safety. As a skipper, David led by example. His readiness to experiment in adapting, testing, and redesigning equipment in the fishing industry saw him introducing the first shelter deck to the Scottish fleet for the protection of his crew. This innovation was subsequently widely adopted, and eventually, full shelter decks became the standard throughout the Scottish fleet. David Smith is a recipient of the MBE for his services to the fishing industry. But ultimately, what emanates from the text are the personal qualities of a man whose life was dedicated to fishing. He is a resourceful and determined man, thoughtful, single-minded, and courageous, at times self-deprecating and yet maintaining his sense of humour. David Smith’s personal story as a skipper acknowledges both hardship and success and offers us a rich and valuable primary source that provides insight into a disappeared way of life. It is the record of a tight-knit family at home and at work and the mesh of those family lines within the wider fishing community. Those who pick up and read David’s book will immediately recognize it as a significant contribution not only to local history but to the wider context of the British fishing industry.
