YELLOWTAIL

YELLOWTAIL

Albert Weller took this slide of a nice-looking (former?) trawler YELLOWTAIL circa August 1976 and, I think, at Lowestoft.

I have found no details of her career, but she may previously have held the fishing no. LT326. What I can find is plenty of references to her current status as a wreck in Lowestoft harbour (raised fairly recently?) but with no details of when she foundered, etc. Can anyone fill in all these various blanks, please.

Well done to our two super-sleuths! Now we only need details of her sinking!
