Speedwell PD 491

Does anyone know anything about a steam drifter called the Speedwell registered at one point as PD 491. I am researching my family tree and am seeking information on this boat. Any help greatly appreciated!

Welcome aboard from East yorkshire.
I'm sure someone among the fishing vessel historians in the crew will be able to help.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship and enjoy the voyage.
