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.

    Delighted to be accepted on Bosun’s Watch, am researching my late fathers war career as he served on HMST Goth P No FY 649 (later ST Goth FD 52) as PO his name was J G Wright & he was awarded the DSM for his part in an action in the Mediterranean in 1944. AS he never talked about the war I don’t know which action this was & would love to find out. Also been trying to obtain plans of the vessel as I have always wanted to build a model of the Goth (I’m a retired Shipwright). Would appreciate any help I can get. Fraternally John.
