I was up there on another T boat at the time, we were told not to take the piss out of them when they walked into Neptune SR's bar..like that was going to stop us :grin:

Rock on, we bore the brunt of the trawler men bringing wreckage from the trawler to us, calling us all the names under the sun, again, not a good day

Boats are always easy to blame, when the Pescado went down the owner said the black paint on the side was indicative of a submarine hitting it. When it was raised and brought into Guzz dockyard we bimbled over to have a look at it. The liferaft was lashed to the deck and the release gear (which wouldn't have worked anyway) was rusted up to buggery.

The owners got done for manslaughter

Back in the day the OOW had to keep the 'Fishing Vessel Log' to head off spurious claims from fisher folk that we had cut their nets etc. Now what was the name of the trawler that sank in the Arctic .. and the bereaved kept up a song and dance about the RN but when it was raised everyone could see that the forward hatch had not been secured in a seamanlike manner .. ? All about can I touch the Govt for compo.

I was on Trenchant as a Pt3 POMEA at the time. We were told not to say anything going inboard, jumped into a fast black to head to the delights of Helensburgh and the 1st thing the driver asked us was: 'are you lads off the sub that sunk the trawler' so much for a news blackout

I knew there was a reason why we filled in those logboards in pencil. To correct those mistakes.
