Thank you for the information. I had assumed that the trawlers that went to Greenland would be bigger than the ones which did not go as far. The voyages must have been much longer and they would have had to carry more provisions, fuel etc.If you go through the old newspapers around 1890-1900 they report small 100 to 120 ft boats fishing off Greenland etc. There is a report of an Aberdeen trawlers docking in Boston, USA for coal. I think these were mainly line fishing.
