    FIFIE IN NEED OF RESTORATION FOR SALE – FOR £1

    A 49ft 1926-built fifie built by Miller, James N & Son Ltd, St Monans for use as a herring drifter, Bruce’s is registered in the National Historic Fleet.

    She was formerly owned by the Bruce family of Arbroath, and has been converted to a live-aboard, though with as many original features kept as possible. http://intheboatshed.net/2016/02/14/...or-sale-for-1/

    A very good definition in Wikipaedia indeed It did not mention my version

    Should I write to them about it? Have you ever written to Wikipaedia ?

    Gillon - there is a tab named "edit" near the top right of a wiki page. Click it an see how it can be edited. You will need to create an account though

    This is the strength, but also the problem with wiki - if someone does create data (or delete someone else's) and it is wrong .......There is also the potential for deliberate misinformation (eg to discredit a competitor, or an organisation you might have a grudge about) and the ways of weeding this out are not always robust

    You can also see the edit history on any page - ie who has changed what and when. There seem to be a lot of "professionals", self-appointed or otherwise updating wiki. It amazes me - news breaks about the transfer of one player from a lower league team to another ......and check the player's page on wiki ...... and it is already updated ! They are even more eagle-eyed than I am with checking on NSSP pages !
