Hello everybody,

I am not a seaman but I am looking for some help in finding information about 3 trawlers. I have a friend at my work who was a trawlerman and is very interested in finding the history of these vessels. He is not on the internet and he has no intention of using a computer unfortunately. I said I would help him in locating these trawlers for him. They are Ross Cormorant, Kittywake and Tern. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
