Sinead, a very young visitor from Haddington, lost her grip on her scooter on a windy day recently and it fell into the harbour. A teary plaintive request, “Ah dinnae ken whit happened, but ma scooter’s fell in. Can anyones find it?” After a subsequent search, we spotted two scooters submerged deep in the kelp but only one was pink. 

There are currently no fishing quotas on catching scooters so James Bisset quickly hooked and landed it. See photo above: “Gey drookit, smellin’ o’ diesel” and the scooter was a wee bit grubby too. After a rub down, dry out and lubrication, the scooter was as good as new. Sinead was ecstatic as she thought it had been lost for ever. She now visits our harbour more often but keeps a firm grip on her beloved scooter. Sinead sent a well-crafted thank-you cartoon. We all live and learn.
