No Ole she had a wheelhouse fire at sea. A mobile phone charger went on fire and the wheelhouse is almost burned out. She will take a few weeks to repair.

Thanks Davie...
I never got that close to her port side that I could see she had been in fire....Although, it takes a few weeks to repair and reinstall equipment, it must be considered to be "cheap" compared to the damage a fire can cause to a ship on sea..

Like some other trawlers this one have a kind of basket made in aluminium pipes. It seems to be loose and stores just behind the hatch for fishbag starboard side.
What is this basket thing for ?

When they haul up a boulder the cage sits above the hopper ( fits into the hopper hatch ) so the fish/prawns go into the hopper but the stone doesn't. They then hook the cod end wire into the inboard side of the grate and lift , the stone then falls outboard clear of the boat.
