Last one I would say is a Mussel boat and not a trawler

Loving the snaps, thanks for sharing.....

but

I'm really sorry to disappoint you all but that Fishing vessel is actually a Beam trawler called Jaco mina BM208

Built 1966, still a working boat but also partakes in the regular ''Brixham Trawler Race''

No problem, I like to please folk and help build and join in the community Thumbup

Thanks for the info on the usage of these boats as I had no idea, how do they operate, do the beams hold the net in some way on both sides of the boat at once ? be good to know.

Beam trawlers have two boom/spar, one each side (port/starboard)that hang over the side of the hull and drag nets to catch fish, very simple really, then once the nets are full they are hoisted upwards and pulled in over the side and uploaded.

Its a Scallop dredger , but formerly a beam trawler, scallping is hard on the paint and steel of a vessels bullwarks  due to the teethed swords scraping away, a lot of vessels need their sides replaced after a few years due to this, I worked aboard a scalloper/trawler, we got her painted and switched from prawn trawl to scallop dredges after 6 weeks, pre dredges she looked very tidy, after the dredging commenced you could see the paint disappearing, thw teo pictures are maybe three months apart
