Merchant's Room : The Reaper Restoration

On the 4th of July the Scottish Fisheries Museum received a fantastic 50th birthday present with the return of the Reaper to her home berth in Anstruther harbour!

We know that many visitors to Anstruther have been missing seeing the Reaper in the harbour so our Boatyard team have created a small display to tell all!

We’re pleased to launch the new temporary exhibition in our Merchant’s Room this week. The display is dedicated to telling the story of the extensive restoration work our historic flagship Reaper at Babcock’s Rosyth Facilities.

This major programme of work, funded by the Scottish Government, will enable the Fifie to sail on for many years to come.

This week we also launch our Reaper crowdfunder page where you can contribute to the ongoing restoration programme - in return for some exclusive rewards. The masts are one of the most crucial aspects of the restoration and we would like your help to raise the Reaper’s masts.
