Hi Don. Just read in the Hull Daily Mail that a new museum dedicated to trawlers and the fishing industry is to open in Hull on March 9th. It is located down the High Street next to the Transport museum. The article was very brief but it did mention that crew lists will be on displaydon said:is there a website were you can actually trace crews on all ships on trawlers
name of the ship- year, and it will tell you the crews names, is this possible
anybody help me here,
My name is Georg Kanstad. My grandfather was a Norwgian pilot.My name is Robert Clark and I served aboard the "Kingston Chrysobery" as radio operator in 1951 I do not remember signing on or off but maybe the office had a record? The weather was something else so I went back deep sea!!!
Just google "sidewinders hull". You will find most of the ships there.PS You will find a nice photo of the OLVINA in the gallery on this site, just go to fishing vessels then type in OLVINA.My name is Georg Kanstad. My grandfather was a Norwgian pilot.
He was piloting ships along the Norwegan coast. In december 1957 he was piloting ST Olvina of Hull from Lodingen to Honningsvåg. I am looking for an images of this trawler..(and other trawlers). Piloting were a very important business for my hometown (Lodingen) and I am very interested also in the ships they served , the crews and their homes which I think is part of our history.
Marmalade on Kippers,I wonder how that would have been received if I`d put it on the breakfast menu?Hello Georg, welcome to SN. I remember sailing through that area en route to the North Cape, we referred to it as "The Fjords". I recall being intrigued by the pilot putting jam on his fish! I thought that was strange until I remembered that I like to have marmalade with kippers (reduces the all day breakfast syndrome). That would have been in the late '60s, maybe he was your Grandad.
Was your Grandfather an ex fisherman?
Looking forward to seeing you give Stein from Oslo what for!
