Do a search of both those galleries and you should find plenty of photos of the Aine or her sister the Western Chieftain Umi

Thank you Dave,

Do you see this boat often?
I could use some deck plans...  :-))

I have collected a lot of referance photos, but your link had one of Aine with trawl doors.
It's the first photo I have found that actually shows her with doors. I imagine she purse seines most of the time?

Regards
Aimée

I think you will find that these boats concentrate more on trawling now but maybe someone may tell you different--Charlie

Aine/Western Chieftain can only trawl Umi , don't think there's a single boat on the Irish register that can purse seine now , only a couple of boats left in Scotland that can but they normally only trawl as well

I think the Aine/Western Chieftain pair up for the Mackerel. Normally don't see them that often they've both been here for refits and repaints ( I'm NE Scotland ) but normally I don't see them about
