Hello,

Here is a photograph of the coal steam trawler Côte d'Argent leaving the Boulogne sur mer harbour,when she was owned by " Veuves François et Mathieu Fourny "

Have you photographs or informations about the british life of this trawler when she was renamed " Boston Valiant" , year 1953 ?

Thanks

Pierre

Hello Pierre

Fleetwood Maritime Heritage Trust would be very interested to know the date of registration at Boulogne and the date the registry was closed.

Hello gentlemen.

This Cote D´Argent was registered in Boulogne as new in november 1946, and sold in september 1953, according to the book La Peche Boulonnais au temps du chalutier a vapeur by Guennoc.

Many thanks Birgir that lines up with her completion and her transfer to Fleetwood registry. I was hoping that Pierre would be able to give the precise dates from his contacts in Boulogne sur mer.
