dc.descriptionBiographical interview with Jack Niblock (b.1932) about his life-long interest in boats and fishing. Jack begins by speaking about his family history and links to Dumfries & Galloway which included seafarers and oyster fishers. Jack's father was a cabinet maker who progressed into banking and moved the family south to pursue his career. Jack continued to visit Whithorn and when he left school, rather than go on to university which was the family preference, he pursued a career at sea and eventually became a master with Alfred Holt & Company. Jack is the last master mariner on the Isle of Whithorn. Jack could just recall a time when goods and people were transported along sea routes and he talks about change over time in transportation, fishing, lifeboat and rescue services and describes the local hostelries, shops and businesses. Jack also talks about how the community has changed, reflecting on the important role new incomers have had on the viability of the community. Towards the end of the interview, Jack talks about the challenges facing young people today, the role of technology and his concerns about centralisation.
