How do

20th April 2007, 08:13

The name is Jim and I've just signed on. I had a few trips aboard trawlers in the sixties and decided that it was too much like hard work for a lazy boggart like myself so I went "Big Boating" instead. I sailed with Elders (Corrales) and Blue Star (Brisbane Star (many times) Scottish Star and South Africa Star). They were happier times (I'm wearing my rose tinted glasses as I write this).
Now I run The Bosun's Watch website - - on behalf of Fleetwood Maritime Heritage Trust and have a "placeholder" site for them at One site deals exclusively with trawlers, mainly Fleetwood, whilst the other will concentrate on the general maritime past of Fleetwood.
