Graham Thanks for that ..Well it looks as if Im on the wrong track Neils Thomsen bought a bought from Wick called the Earna ( Danish built) around 1948-50 and I had been wondering if she became the C Risager however it appears not The 1950 Olsens gives 5 boats in WA reg WA 23 Vidar owned by A Thinnesen WA 28 Fenne owned by Hugo Thinnesen WA35 M Aaen owned by Laurids Sorensen WA 42 C Risager and lastly the M K Noer WA 44 owned by Jens Eriksen Noer
Many thanks

Earna is not listed in 1948 Olsens, don't know if that helps or not?
