I know this vessel well, as I was the last fishing her up to 1994 side trawling of the Nigerian coast. I see on the picture here her stern mast was removed and some funny building was made on her stern deck. this vessel was built in 1958 by Chantiers Attaliers de la Manche in Dieppe, voor her owner under de name Robert Masset, home port Bolougne, her main engine is a Deutz RBV 545 800 Hp. by 350 rpm. direct drive engine reverseble true a Lips manual ajustable propeller. Generators are boduin, all 110 DC. fishing winche electric. Her problem is in her stern at the ruddergland where she's corroded and leaking, she needs permanent ballastng in the bow, otherwise she will sink. Before I took her over when she was laid up in Enerhen Warri, for nearly ten years, before that she was used as a cement lighter..

this ship looks like an east german trawler and you can see the winch and and the side is clearly made to protect from trawl but many of them were later conwerted to coasters could that be the case here ?
