This is the Present Help FR53. Originally built for my Dad - Gilbert Whyte of Cairnbulg. He is 92 years old and still alive. He was reunited with his boat in 14/04/2010 after 25 years of selling her on. She originally was painted white. Hope this helps you?
You can reach my dad on facebook as Gibby Whyte. My name is John Whyte and I live and work in West Sussex UK

Found out who the owners were when she was in FR, they were G,Whyte (Fraserburgh)and R.B.Whyte (Cairnbulg)maybe that will help ye Davy !!!!
The Forever Gratefull are owned by the Whyte's so maybe the same clan.
