Pretty sure the Green Plover your talking about was built by Harrisons at Amble. She was in Guernsey at one time & was registered as GU 460. She later operated from Shoreham & is now a total wreck lying in Oare Creek near Faversham in Kent.

think the Green Plover was a sister to my old boat Green Cormorant except Green Plover had the wheelhouse aft.

Was built for Old Ernie or was it Danny? Ingram, at Amble in the sixties, moored next to John Weston's coble "Margeret Weston" in the north eat corner of the North Dock at Sunderland. Was always kept immaculate, and only fished part-time, as the family had a buliding business ,including a hardware shop. Was a bit of a pipe dream, but one of the sons, stayed at the fishing, I think Paul, (Dogsbody ) fished with young Ernie in the coble "Star of Nazareth" .
Actually the best person to clear this up would be Barry Owens of the "Golden Lily" his memory would be a little clearer than mine.and he spent his formative years around the North Dock.
