Hi,
I'm new on here and I admit I'm not a trawler afficianado like the rest of you...........however I hope you can help!
I am researching a vintage postcard of what appears to be a trawler called Iris whose number is LT942......does anyone have any details about this boat?
Thanks In Advance,
Mark Fraser

This is the photo we have of her on the site

From looking at her she is a 2 masted sailing trawler or sailing drifter , she looks to be a type that was built between the mid 1800's until 1920 ( I think the Master Hand LT1203 was the last one built ) , built of wood with a steam powered capstan for hauling either the trawl rope or drift net head rope.

Any idea where she was based?
