We’re very grateful to Bob Mainprize of Scarborough for allowing us to share this wonderful video of the sea trials of his boat, Maggie M MBE SH 170 (Yard no.81). She was built at Campbeltown Shipyard during 1987 and was launched the following year – her sea trials took place shortly afterwards. The video quality isn’t as great as it was originally recorded on VHS but the fact that it exists is amazing and it is asset to this online archive. It is a great piece of archive film documenting what took place during the sea trials in Campbeltown Loch whilst the shipyard there was still producing vessels.

You can view the video of her construction here and of her launch here.
