    the starbank was owned by the smiths of fraserburgh that also had the seiner argo. i think then she went to buckie? from there to grimsby (some where along the line renamed `westtra`sold to burtonport and then to rossaveal in galway where she was scrapped. i fished on her for a time in burtonport where she belonged to a cousin of mine. fastcat thats her. the smiths put new wheelhouse,gutting shelter and whaleback on her.

    The Starbank I'm thinking of were steamers, were in use around 1930 to possibly the late 40's or 50's.

    Just wondering if anyone had any photos?
