New Our Lass III WY261 almost ready to launch at Whitby
« on: June 20, 2013, 05:37:40 PM »

The Our Lass II WY261 was sold to Ireland last year ( where she is still fishing very successfully , thats the model you can buy from Model Slipway or Deans Marine ) , this is her larger replacement.

26m overall , 23.98m registered length and built for whitefish single , twin-rig and pair trawl , due to launch in 3 weeks time , there is a second identical trawler started building for a Hull firm ( linked to the Marr company of old ) to be ready early next year

What a very impressing boat. There is nearly as much of her underwater
 as there is on top of it.

They have to be built like the proverbial brick convenience.
With the Quota regime they all have to deal with they
have to be able to fish in extreme weather as a day
at sea laying head to wind in a gale is a day lost
and cannot be recovered by coming out when the
weather is better. If your quota is twenty days you need to fish for twenty
days.

As Ned says they have to fish in extremely bad weather ( F9 sometimes F10 ) simply due to the idiotic days-at-sea regulations which means the average whitefish boat fishes for around 140 days a year ( but have to pay "slipper skippers" a fortune for around 40 of those days as they only get 90-100 allocated from the EU ) , they also have to be able to carry a lot more fish using a lot less fuel than before as well

She has a fully round bilge hull ( previous OL had a multi-chine hull ) which means she will be a better sea boat and burn less fuel as well as being able to have 1120 boxes of fish aboard ( put into perspective my families last side trawler the 87ft David John could carry 320 boxes and another 500 max in bulk in the ponds for the same length )

Hi Dave,
please excuse my ignorance, but what is a "slipper skipper"?

New one on me as well
Guess its a guy with a quota
who sells it to a skipper that fishes
and sits at home in his slippers {-)

Slipper Skipper : normally a retired skipper who's sold or scrapped his boat BUT kept the licence(s) he owns to hire out the days-at-sea and the quota he had for the boat.

Days are a fortune to rent ( over 1k a day as far as I know ) and quota is really expensive to rent , Cod is 1.80-2 a KG to rent and the price on the market is 1.40-1.70 sometimes over the rental price but most of the time its not worth landing them as you'd be out of pocket ( this is what causes discards and needs to be changed drastically and as soon as possible )

Top marks to the designers, the previous 'Our-Lass-II' was a nice looking vessel, but with lengthening her they have created a lovely looking vessel with her lines and curves. Any owner would be proud to own her. (she would make a nice looking model).

Hope that lovely paint job was intact after the launch

safely in the river now and they're hoping to go on sea trials / fishing trials in the middle of July ( still the aft mast on top of the wheelhouse to install and a few other jobs to finish off )

You can see just how she was built by visiting the gallery thats on Trawlerphotos of her build

Ian Paton the designer is one of the directors of Parkol so the design is done effectively in-house Dan

news to me Dave, I remember asking them directly years ago and they said its all designed and steel CNC cut by external sources, effectively meaning Parkol are simply welders etc.

times change in these economic climes.......designers in house save much dosh.....you only have to look at the way the RNLI work...........trial boats on the market and then design their own from the info gained.

All the steel is cut ( normally MacDuff Profilers I think ) into a kit form , but , they still have to form and fabricate a lot of the boat from scratch , this is how all shipyards work nowadays as using computer cut kit makes the job far more accurate and a lot cheaper

Think they might be a Dutch company Dan , even the new warships we're building are computer cut and then assembled like a giant Airfix kit built into modules then all welded together
