Fishing Song from the Moray Coast, Scotland

What is the meaning of this song?
Gordon explains how Burghead came to be one of his favourite places. It was in the 1970s that he wrote the song.
He recalls the day of a Boat Christening at the harbour where “….a child fell into the water. Without hesitation the owner of the new boat jumped into the water and dragged him out.
All over in seconds but could have been tragic.
Impresses on me the bravery of the fishermen”.
