The cost of fish, Margaretha Maria, lost in 1997 with all hands.


Somewhere between the 11th and 17 of November 1997 the Newlyn based beam trawler, Margaretha Maria was lost.  Skipper Rob Holmes, mate John Todd and his son Kerry along with Vince Marshall all went down with the boat.  

Today, the Newlyn memorial acts as a memorial to all those fishermen, like Vince, lost at sea and whose bodies are never recovered.
