A Helensburgh resident, Tom Peebles, built the vessel and its engine when he lived in the town, and at that time he was engineer for the Rhu RNLI lifeboat. Talisker was taken by trailer to his new home in Perthshire to be completed, and returned to Rhu by trailer for the celebrations. Photo by Kenneth Speirs.Oct 16, 2012
