The trawler looks a 'wreck' - no masts, radars, etc and no crew visible

I took this photo in 1984 and not 1985 as I first thought, so as Nicolina pointed out, this is the year she was scrapped, after being laid up for some time.

Thanks for confirming my comment.
Would you say her hull was Green???
As some of the smaller trawlers built at Selby especially for Marr & Co they had an special veranda with an cut-away section in it just aft of the aft SB window and one can see it in this shot.

Hi Jonleif,

Definitely a green hull. I was on the dredger CAVE SAND at the time and grabbed my camera and took this shot. I never found out (until now) what ship she was!
