Hello All

Hey Everyone!
Just a quick hello coupled with a request. My dad and most of his eight brothers were all trawlermen sailing out of hull during their working lives. As it turned out, I didn't follow the tradition (went RN instead, sorry!) I'm now currently enjoying life as freelance commercial artist.
Now to the point, one of my surviving uncles has made a "comission" request of me - he sailed on the MV Cordella as his first trawler in the sixties (i think), and has asked me to paint a picture of this ship, the thing is, I just cant find any photos anywhere, even on the internet. Does anyone of you good people out there have any images of her, preferably colour, but any would do, which you can post up for me to use as a reference for a painting. Obviously, I'm not asking for any photos that are covered by copyright, but just any pics out of someones personal collection would be great.
Much appreciation in advance

Hi Neil, I don’t know if the last two photos could be the one you’re looking for, hopefully the fishing lads can advice

Welcome aboard from northern East Yorkshire, Neil.
If there are any pictures anywhere the crew will find them.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship and have a good voyage.
