Two fishing boats in Fleetwood

Two fishing boats in the harbour; the FD37 and LO94.

The trawler LO94 was called 'Ella Hewett', built in Beverley in 1964. After fishing from Fleetwood she was sold to Colne Shipping as an oil-rig safety ship, re-named the St Kitts.
The second one FD37 was called 'Wyre Defence', built at Selby in 1956. She was scrapped in 1979.

These two old girls bring back a host of happy memories of when we had the Ben fishing boats in North Shields back in the 1950s & 1960s
