How many crew were on the Ross Tiger?

I'm researching the Ross Tiger/ sidewinder trawlers like it in the 1960s-70s and am trying to figure out how many crew it would usually take on a trip and what roles those crew members had. I've found some websites that say 12 and some that say 20 men. Which one is accurate?
The positions on board I have so far are:
Skipper 1
First Mate 1
Second Mate 1
Third Hand 1
Chief Engineer 1
Second Engineer 1
Decky Cook 1
Galley Boy 1
Radio Operator 1
Deck Hands 2
Decky Learner 1

This makes 12, but have I missed any out? Is it actually 20? Any help would help me out loads, thanks!
