Hi again,

Ah, seen the caption, were the topside deck houses altered for the filming? or like that already..can clearly see the hull lines of a HDML...yes, thinking on, another RAF supply launch comes to mind, but the name has gone! fully restored some years ago, hull glassed over but great job, not an armed vessel...personnel and cargo..met the owner once when they visited Chatham marina few years ago, sans vessel....memory shocking these days.... up for sale for a long time.....

Great pics Piquant, always nice to see another HDML in action to, and to place a sighting of one do you remember the year you last saw her Johnk? There are only 8 known left in the UK so if there's a possibility of a ninth that would be good news! It would be something if a copy of that VHS turned up! At least it seems to have two possibilities for survival, who knows it may well do!

Hi, I found this forum completely by chance while trying to find information on the Calshot Salar. My dad worked on her when it was a fishing charter boat out of Rothesay. I spent the first year of my life on her as honorary crew! There are a few tales my dad told me, if you are still interested. Best wishes.

Hi, I returned to this site as my brother has just returned from Rothesay and we were talking about the Calshot Salar again. Great to see some photos of her. My dad had a great time on her, he was no seafarer having grown up in Bucks, but after he moved to the Isle of Harris he worked for a while on a local fishing boat before being offered a summer working with a fellow Harris man who was a sailor called Rory Macintyre. They ran fishing charters and got into a fair few dubious situations! In Rothesay the night duty policemen used to call by if they were tied up as there was a small bar installed in the boat. They used to get them roaring drunk and set them home to the station with little night fishing line bells pinned to the back of their uniforms, gently tinkling as they stumbled off! They also once put a charter of tax inspectors who had not had much luck catching anything and wanted a refund and to go home asap off on Millport (an island) telling them they could catch the next train to Glasgow!
