I am sure it is.
I did some work on the vessel, when it came to Hvide Sande and changed from trawl to beamer (schrimp). As I remember I could see the letters LK 497 welded to stem behind the blue colour. The vessel is today owned by some divers near Aalborg.

Regards

I see here in a Danish book( Fishing Fleet) that she was also the H-497 "Krisona", 1980-2000 ,wrong?? LK is not mentioned.

she had a big fresh water tank in her it was write forward we never filled it full because she went in with the head ,so i think it must be full and the gallows are gone as well she must have been bad to steer

Hello Ole,
That is very misleading is'nt?
I was already wondering why e.g. Martin Johns did not know the fact that she had also a Hull reg.
Thanks Ole.

When the vessel was rebuild to beamtrawl extra weight were welded under the keel. The longitudinal centre of gravity on that ballast was as foreward as possible to keep draft aft at a minimum. The skipper were very interested in a small draft to be able to fish as close as possible to the beach......The vessel also ended as fishing vessel, when it grounded and the waves turned it over on the side..
The vessel only steamed short distance as they often started fishing just outside the harbour.

There are 3 countries that use the H prefix

Belgium H is for Heyst
Denmark H is for Helsingor
and UK H is Hull
