View Full Version : 1899 steam trawlers for Fraserburgh

14th August 2007, 22:31
Am looking for reg. nos. for the following 3 vessels, Knowsie, Memsie, and Tyrie. All built 1899 by John Duthie of Footdee, but at the Montrose yard that they rented for a short time. All 3 were for Fraserburgh and North of Scotland Steam Trawling Co. Anyone help?

Have found that Memsie was FR788, so thats them sorted! however....stuck for another two registrations, both 1903 builds from the Duthie Footdee yard this time. Loch Tay and Loch Carron, both built for Aberdeen owners so presumably A reg's.....anyone know, please??

LOCH TAY (A 888) Built:1903 Steam Trawler. Stranded Kirton Head 21/3/1905. Skipper: Fitzpatrick. (Probably got that info from The Real Price of Fish: Aberdeen Steam Trawler Losses 1887-1961 by George Ritchie)

P.S. The TYRIE collision was 12/1/1901
