I assume this is the Aberdeen vessel Admiral Jellicoe A 515 built 1961. She has George Craig and Sons funnel markings but I think probably last registered to H.K.F. Trawlers Ltd (when fishing) presumably a subsidairy of Craig

Do you reckon you get any of the crew thrown in for good measure if you buy?

Top pics in the advert are of the GRAMPIAN RIVER ex Admiral Jellicoe-78, retired from standby/oil dispersant role (oil dispersant poles still rigged). Bottom pics clearly show the funnel rings for the original owners Parbel-Smith Ltd marking. See aberdeenships for a bit of her history.

Thanks for pointing out the Parbel-Smith Ltd rings, They give me the exact spacing. I casually saw them and thought something to do with old Craig rings, could do with a few more like these.

Out of curiosity, did you get an asking price? Not that I want it but have a friend who has converted four North Sea trawlers into Tall Ships and made a good job of them.

Admiral Jellicoe, I caught many fish on her, worked for North Star for most of my 10 years fishing - started on the "PARKROYD" another goalpost masted trawler with North Star
