Some more info i found out about the vessel Richard, she got sold from Shetland to Lewis and got renamed Diana II SY 299, she got on a new wheelhouse and shelterdeck when there, later she became Jasper BF 778 where she fished from Fraserburgh and Mallaig till she got broken up in Macduff harbour in 2002. Hope this is of some intrest to your father. All the best.
