ABS PZ203 & Jacqueline PZ192 Newlyn

Two more for disposal?

ABS has been partiallly stripped, her winch removed, and is being worked on. Jacqueline with her nameplate removed and her registration painted out does not look likely to fish either. She is one of the very last traditional sidewinders afloat and it will be sad to see them

Approximately 30 in all of various sizes and types. As mentioned and photographed by Treeve two have been broken up recently and several more are apparently laid up for disposal. The main active fleet comprises about twenty units which are mostly beam trawlers of second hand Dutch origin.

Only remaining "old fashioned" family fishing operation in England - and for some years the largest. All run by the family many of whom are partners in the business with much day to day envolvement and seen on the quay running the fleet every day. A Cornish institution!

I too hope that they preserve the Excellent, which has been taken to historic ship meetings abroad. I know that Stevos are very proud of their fishing heritage so there must be a reasonable chance.
