Update... I am now looking for her history from 1979 onwards to date.
 
She took part in a movie called  "Catch me a spy" starring Kirk Doglas, Trevor Howard and others. Her opponent "german" vessel was an HDML, a fairmile, called La-Lage, which was wrecked between sunken ammunition barges and Gull Point some years later.

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.
