July, 1896 - July 1896

The herring fishing boat, Prosperity, INS795, belonging to Hugh Vass, Balintore, while on it’s way to Burghead damaged it’s keel. When it was put in to dry dock for repair in Burghead the boat suddenly lurched to the side and the keel was torn off. The crew have arranged for a smaller boat so they can continue to fish but crew that are not needed are going home to Balintore.
