Great shot! :-)

After the war many trawlers were converted from coal burners to oil burning vessels. The storage space taken up by the oil was much less than the coal and it was quicker and easier to pump the oil on board. The steam trawler [i]Wyre Mariner[/i] FD 34(Fleetwood, England - UK), built in 1956 in Selby(England) and owned by Wyre Trawlers Ltd. She later became the [i]Northern Sun[/i] GY2(Grimsby, England - UK).
