    Fife went on designing and building yachts well into his seventies. In 1935, aged 78, he designed one of his most admired ocean racing yachts, Latifa. She was one of his all-time favourites and, when he died in 1944, his sisters had a gilded model made of her. The real Latifa is still sailing in the Mediterranean, and the model is still on top of the spire of Fairlie Parish Church. Fife's grave is in the Largs cemetery, overlooking the waters where his beautiful designs made their mark.

    Any one know if they can be put back on here somehow?
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    And that, friends, is the indispensable attribute that no good and experienced craftsman lacks. Can't do anything but move on, and right now, no whining. Right on Peter.

    one day a man on a mission walked into the yard where we repaired narrowboats, he told me he had a bolinder engine, & he was looking for a narrowboat to put it in, i asked him did he want a rotten boat or a sound boat,
    rotten he said, then he could take his time rebuilding it, we walked over to where 2 boats were moored together, a coke can had floated between them & sunk one of them, your in luck said i, we have what you want,
    6 grand to rebuild the bow
    9 grand for the stern
    & your divorce lawyer can advise you on the bit inbetween
    fine he said, where do i sign
