Had a record trip from Greenland in 59 i think made over 18000 Pound a record which was unbeaten for many years but had also a lot of damage on that trip because of bad weather when homeward bound. Skipper was Bernard Stipetic a man used to set records
also after this one in other Hull trawlers especially in the Norwegian Coast spring fishing.
Powered by a triple expansion engine with exhaust steam turbine.
