    1898 sold to Jón Jörgen Christen Havsteen, factor (merchant manager), Akureyri, Iceland, (certificate of ownership dated may 6th). Used for handlining with a crew of about 15-18.
    In Iceland, the ship was only measured to 49 grt.
    There was a photographer on board during the delivery voyage, a certain Mr. T. Throup. His pictures are online on the Icelandic museum website, http://www.sarpur.is – including a couple of Talisman. (Also some of Fleetwood).

    The Talisman was issued the fishing registration number EA 23 in 1903.
    1917: Sold to Ásgeir Pétursson, shipowner, herring curer, and merchant, Akureyri. Fitted with 40 ha „Hein“ kerosene engine.
    24.03. 1922, wrecked at Sauðanes, (Western fiords of Iceland) when bound to the south of Iceland for the seasonal cod fishery. 8 out of a crew of 16 got ashore, but 4 of them died of exposure before reaching shelter at Flateyri in Önundarfjörður.

    The first link I provided, http://www.sarpur.is/Adfang.aspx?AdfangID=675374 shows a cutter with a registration number that does NOT look like FD76. Although it is identified as the Talisman, the picture is probably taken from the Talisman, of a different ship. The picture was probably teken during the delivery of the Talisman to Iceland, that is to say in about april/may 1898.
