British Steam Trawlers - From Development to Demise

This product is currently sold out.

Exceptional book on the history, development and use of the British steam trawler from 1858, until the last was scrapped in 1979; the last coal-fired trawlers lasted until 1964.

As well as the chapters on development and history - this including war service, other chapters cover Trawls and Trawling Gear, Design and Construction, and Trawler Deck Fittings and Details. With 142 B&W photos, and around 90 scale  drawings, including lines, there is a huge amount of detail here - enough for any ship modeller, or marine historian.

312 well produced pages. Hardbound.

(If you remember the Waine Research titles on British coastal shipping, this is the same writ large, and there cannot be a higher recommendation!)
