she worked up in Greenland for a while catching shrimps before she went to Namibia. While in Namibia the target species was Hake. Fished strong in all areas, not much "big" trawlers left and if the rumours of Sunbeam (LK) being sold are true that leaves only a couple.
mind that well davie when you came down the march road into buckie she towered above the sheds it was a fair old site like. that shed seen alot o big boats built in them ie,eleanda,aquilla 2, ptarmigen big boats in there own rights but the victory dwarfed the sheds the were built in
Lads, Are you not sure it was the Mizpah BF 777 that you saw on the slip at Buckie,i doubt if the Victory was on the slip at Buckie,the Mizpah i think was the biggest on there,i remember when she was launched after getting fitted out the rails that the carriage runs on got damaged with the weight of her,that was 1994.
