She looks like the "Bayflower" that I built and was stolen in 2000....except it isn't. Same style, same length etc.etc.
I suggest you contact the Hull Fisheries Museum and they will give you chapter and verse on the boat (assuming the name is genuine). There will be some differences, but in general Trawlers built during the late 1920's and 1930's followed a pattern. If it is of the size I imagine, she will weigh about 50lb in the water (?) with a 4.5" draught and will go niceley through your winter storms.
Wish I knew the "xxxxx" who stole mine though.
