Reaper a Scottish Fifie

Reaper is a Sailing Herring Drifter- the most popular design of fishing boat on the East Coast of Scotland for the greater part of the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Built by J & G Forbes at their yard at Sandhaven near Fraserburgh in 1902 for the Buchan family who lived in St. Combs. She began life as a two masted sailing lugger. With a length of 70` she was rigged with a dipping lug foresail and a standing lug mizzen.

It was one of 12 featured in the RNLI calendar called Nigel Reed`s Working Boats
