I've seen charts illustrating the hull and funnel colours for the shipping lines of various periods.

Does anything similar exist for the fishing industry? I realise it isn't a simple question - although Irvin's Bens had the same red bands on a black funnel didn't they change hull colour?

At the moment I know nothing. Any improvement on that would be good.

The Marr's fleet had very distinctive hull and funnel colours ( Yellow hull , white upperworks ( http://www.trawlerphotos.co.uk/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/1258/si/swanella , http://www.trawlerphotos.co.uk/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/1260/si/swanella , http://www.trawlerphotos.co.uk/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/1259/si/swanella ) , the BUT ( British United Trawlers ) had their own paint scheme ( not at home just now i'll see what I can find out ).

Give me a day or so and i'll see what I can find out for you Rob. Trawlercook ( Colin ) , Trawldoor ( Jake ) and a couple of the other men on here will know so you could send them an Email Rob.
