The old Ajax is bound up North

The old Newlyn netter Ajax is now making her way up North to her new home in Eyemouth where she will be back trawling again. When she first arrived in Newlyn as an Arbroath registered boat she was trawling with skipper/owner Barney Thomas from St Ives.  Like many of the 50-60 ft boats she converted to gill netting for hake in the mid to late 1980s.
