Hello to all here!

My name is Wayne Booth and I live aboard my 1964 Noble & Sons Trawler - Silver Quest, berthed in Penryn, Cornwall. I am currently rebuilding her as a Maritime Heritage Teaching Platform.

A few queries:

I was wondering why there are no photo sections for trawlers or sailing craft. Anyone got any ideas?

If anyone has any details/photos on the history of my vessel, I would be very pleased to correspond.

I have found a superb photographic page on a beautiful model of my sister ship made by Jay Cresswell, but have not managed to track him down here with the search. Any suggestions?

Looking forward to finding my feet and uploading some good pictures and details of my vessel.

Welcome from Lancashire - I hope you will enjoy the site.

There is indeed a forum for Fishing Vessels, and a Fishing Vessels section in the Gallery - though you have to opt in to it from your profile. To do this, click on User Control Panel at the top of the screen, select User Control Panel again from the menu presented and look on the bottom left where it says Group Membership and select Fishing View.

She was a great-looking herring ring-netter typical of the ones Noble was producing at that time and went down to the Isle of Man after she left the West Coast of Scotland. What happened to her after that I don't know, but no matter what she will still be a strong boat at her age, Noble built them that way, and fine sea boats.
