Trawling aboard the Jacqueline in the 1940s in Newlyn.

This British Pathé instructional film is largely filmed in Newlyn aboard the Stevenson sidetrawler Jacqueline...

she was one of a small fleet (Jacqueline, Anthony Stevenson, Trewarveneth, Excellent, Elizabeth CarolineMarie Claire and Elizabeth Ann-Webster - the latter two converted to beam trawling in the 1980s)of wooden trawlers owned by Stevensons that formed the backbone of their fleet during and after WWII right up untill they were superceded (but not replaced) by the much newer steel Sputniks (Bervie Braes, Sarah Shaun, ABS and the Karen) followed by the first of the beam trawl fleet the Algrie, AA and Anneleise in 1978-9...

sidewinding in a flat calm took patience and skill in keeping the boat from the gear especially when shooting the trawl away...

gutting in the sidedeck on hands and knees...

the working deck from the foremast...

running repairs on the for'ard trawl door.

and now enjoy the 'out-takes' version!
