A very successful boat. In 1978 her gross earnings of £482,700 made her the second most successful fishing vessel in the British fleet, the large Hull stern trawler CS Forrester just beating her to first place. An amazing achievement for a small vessel which resulted in her skipper, David Smith, being awarded an MBE.
