Seeing her here, on the Channel coast, I guessed that the 'PD393' on her bows meant she once worked out of Padstow - Peterhead seemed a long shot. But a bit of googling revealed that PD393, 'Ocean Pearl' was built as a trawler as far away as Fraserburgh in 1933 - leaving no doubt that her home port had been Peterhead, after all.
