Lying East India harbour Greenock

    Hi Dowler

    Found this on the Web:

    Nordcaperen is a unique converted fishing sailing trawler with an abundance of character! She has a very interesting and colourfull history - she has been used three times in a BBC documentary and she has many admirers all over the UK. She was built in 1924 as a sailing trawler in Denmark.

    18m Karshensen & Henrikson of Skagen Danish Sailing Trawler - built 1924.

    Her hull construction is Oak on Oak. She was built as a sailing trawler and hence the relatively narrow beam and long keel. She is believed to have been skipper-owned during her working life to 1990 when she was decommissioned.

    She was purchsed in 1992 by the late John Fisher, she was lavishly rebuilt and refitted in the years 1993 to 1997 by professional firms of shipwrights in Grimsby. The hull is original, but everthing else was replaced, including deck, wheelhouse, engine and sailing rig.
