Hello

I’m a teacher at Ormiston Maritime Academy. We are researching famous trawlers from Grimsby for a project. I wondered if anyone can help me in any trawlers that are famous / great achievements. It would really help our students.
Thanks

Good morning young man. I am a Lancastrian Traitor Yorkshireman, and spent a very small part of my career in the HUll Fishing Industry in the early 70's.
I am lost where oh where is that august place of teaching Ormanstan?
I hesitate to spoil your party. But why famous Grimsby Trawlers [side winders and stern fishers] only, Why not the set up in the fishing industry at the time, Trawler companies/owners/wet fishers, sienge netters/drifters, factory ships, and the wholesale fish market=buyers and sellers= the trade from Iceland, and the fish reatailers.
Names I am sure may come out of the woodwork to encourage the younger students to join the industry, Not just the name drop of crew members on famous and successful trawlers-Grimsby ships of the past
