    Hi Andy,
    Trawl mesh sizes vary in different parts of the trawl.
    An average modern 10m boat would use trawl doors of between 4' 6" & 5' 6" in length but again this varies according to power. Some modern 10m boats have the same power as an older boat of maybe three times the size & so can tow much bigger trawls & doors.
    There are many different types of trawl door used around the country & the popularity of various types varies from region to region although the Bison cambered & vented doors are universally popular at the moment. Hope this wesite below helps.
