Unidentified fishing vessel

Unidentified fishing vessel

Postby taximan » Sun Aug 14, 2016 7:19 am

I think this is such a sad sight, this vessel has been lying at the old gasworks site in Whitby for some years now, and is visible from the top of the viaduct. Can anyone identify her? The registration looks like FR 19 so she is/was a Frazerburgh boat. if anyone has a photo of her in happier times, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for that folks, now that my memory has been jogged I remember the name from some years back.
