Universal Star

My grandfather was lost off the Universal Star - overboard from the rear - in November 1962. I understand that the trawler was a new design with a hydroconic McGregor "Unigan" system. Our family always thought it was probably the design of the rear that led to his death but Boston Deep Sea Fisheries and the Board of Trade decided it was purely accidental with no question of negligence.
Does anyone know about this system and whether it was continued please?
