Emmie GY425

Hi all
I found this site last week whilst trying to trace photos of my late grandads fishing boat called the Emmie registered GY425 named after my gran,
It was based in grimsby and run by my grandad Dreece
and dad Neil whome is now living back in Esbjerg Denmark.
They steamed up to sunderland and fished out of Sunderland fish quayside from very early 70s maybe 1971
I read on a site there was a lovely photo of her on here somewhere but I failed to find as nothing came up when I put her registered number in the search, so any help would be lovely.
