Hi mattrossa

How stange is that
and within 2 years of each other

Is it possible that 2 vessels have similar info or do you think there is a typo in one of the olsens?

Speak to you later...

Sunlit Waters LT. 377 is listed as the Dautless Star LT. 367 in Olsen's 1961, ( using her official builders number which never changed in those days ) but I can't find any trace of her in the 1957 Almanac. She is still registered in 1975 but disappears from the 1977 book.

Steve

I think the Sunlit Waters LT. 377, became the MILFORD KNIGHT in 1950 M. 137, then the Dauntless Star in 1957. Still trying to confirm this. If anyone has access to a '58 or '59 Olsesn's then the off. number should tally. The first Sunlit Waters was the ex- British Guiana, GY. 331

Hello, I have.
BRITISH GUIANA GY331 O/N164419 became SUNLIT WATERS LT93 after RN service in WW2 FY 271. She was on the Milford register from ?1947 till May 1949. MILFORD KNIGHT(1) M178 (Milford Steam trawling)
She then returned to Lowestoft and reverted to her old name BRITISH GUIANA LT52 (Claridge Trawlers- Colne fishing) broken up in 1968.
So I guess the vessel which fished out of Brixham in 1950 was SUNLIT WATERS O/N 166711.
