Mary Gray : For Sale, July 2019
I have had the pleasure of stepping aboard Mary Gray five years ago when she was one of nine Harrison Butler boats that gathered on the Newtown River in July 2014. At that time Tom Riddell was her proud new owner and I had the pleasure of meeting him and his crew when they rafted up to my boat, Tramontana. Tom's now the HBA's Independent Examiner of Accounts.
I know very little of Mary Gray's history but do know that since March 2017, Mary Gray had a new custodian, Kenneth Findlay. He sailed her from Rhu marina on the Clyde. He's now put her up for sale; she appears to be in very good condition.
