Remember seeing over 20 of this class anchored in Lower Loch Broom at Ullapool in October 1987 all Klondyking Mackerel and Herring. I wonder how many ( if any ) are still around??

Last one I saw was in late 90's in Lobito, Angola.
Crew were living on board but owners had stopped paying wages, food etc.
They were living on handouts from charity workers there during civil war and didn't have enough fuel to run the generators 24 hours.
