Ayrshire Lass

Paul Goss bought her for restoration in 2004 when she was lying in McGruer’s yard on the Clyde.   He intended to have her ready for the Fife Regatta in 2008.

“My Aunt remembers this gaff cutter….. In my mid teens (c1962) I was invited on board Ayrshire Lass by her owner Miss Todrick who was a carpenter / boatbuilder with McGruers.  We had towed her through the Crinan Canal! Miss Todrick was a member of the Clyde Cruising Club and they may have records? She maintained the boat in superb condition which is why she has probably survived to today.”
