They made their mark as a breed of men. Earth shall not see their like again
In memory of The Bosun, Peter Ince who slipped his moorings and caught his last tide in 1998
Please note the links bars on both sides of the page. The “Motor Trawler List” and “The Gallery” will take you to the motor trawler site. Images from this site are hosted on the gallery there.
Under the heading “Categories” there are several options. Choosing “Steam Trawlers (picture)” for example, will list all vessels that have a picture attached to their page.
“Steam Trawlers” will list all vessels that we currently do not have images of. The numbers alongside the various categories lists the total number of files for each category.
If you do not wish to look through the list there is a site search box on the right side of the page. This will search on a partial name although a full one would be better. Entering “Bost” will list all pages that have Boston on them.
Please note that, on pages that have an image on them, clicking on the image will expand it.
