Beam Trawler book
« on: July 06, 2015, 08:30:52 PM »

Thinking ahead to a winter project I would like to have a go at.I have a Maggie M hull which is already cut to the lines I want but now what?
I am a total land lubber,never been on a fishing vessel of any sort and know diddly sqaut about them. Can anyone give me pointers to articles,books etc. with any info about the fittings, rigging,method of use etc.

The ideal thing would be a Haynes manual for beam trawlers or better still, beam trawlers for dummies! The one article I have is from Model Boats magazine about the brixham trawlers which is good if you already have a degree of knowledge about beam trawling.

Cheers.Will
