Photos of the Defiant – Bobby Wylie

We are very grateful to Bobby Wylie, formerly of Campbeltown Shipyard, for this collection of photos of the Campbeltown-built Defiant LK 371 (Yard No. 79) which was launched in 1987. She was built for Magnus Stewart & Partners of Shetland. These photos were taken during her sea trials. The Defiant is still fishing with three of the original partners, Gordon Irvine, Raymond Arthur, and Larry Polson.
