First round of interviews for Top Skippers’ Choice in Campbeltown

A big thank you to all the folks in Campbeltown who gave up their time last week for a chat: Cecil Finn, whose steel boat, the Gleaner CN 284, is part of the story of the link between Thames Launch Works on Eel Pie Island, Twickenham and the Thames Campbeltown Shipyard Ltd, Charlie McMillan who worked for Thames repairing boats at the Old Quay in Campbeltown before the yard was actually built at Trench Point, former plater, Norman Stewart and former Managing Director of Campbeltown Shipyard, Leslie Howarth. Looking forward to more shipyard conversations very soon.
