Calum is the brother of Ruairidh Paterson, who is the new skipper of the boat, and the son of Margaret. He is ably assisted by his deckhand James "Welly" Ross; James and Ruairidh cut their sea-teeth on the boat under the skipperage of John Angus.
It's good to see local careers take off; we hope they have many fruitful days of catch ahead.
