Fish gets in the fish - port record goes again!

 


For many years, the Trevessa IV sailed under the command of the skipper, formerly known as Fish...


until he recently took command of the two-time previous port record holder, Billy Rowney...


and on Friday landed a trip of over 200 boxes of prime fish that included 156 boxes of Dover soles to smash the port record yet again, this time making £118,000...


not bad for a boat built in 1973, though rising fuel costs as a result of the war in Ukraine mean that the wages for skippers and crews of every beam trawler mean they cannot fully enjoy the kind of reward due to them.
