Fleetwood Maritime Heritage Trust would be very interested to know the date of registration at Boulogne and the date the registry was closed.

This Cote D´Argent was registered in Boulogne as new in november 1946, and sold in september 1953, according to the book La Peche Boulonnais au temps du chalutier a vapeur by Guennoc.

Many thanks Birgir that lines up with her completion and her transfer to Fleetwood registry. I was hoping that Pierre would be able to give the precise dates from his contacts in Boulogne sur mer.
