Scarborough Trawler owners company Funnel liveries

Most steam trawlers looked remarkably similar. They were difficult to tell apart particularly if they were a long way off. The funnel colours were particularly useful in identifying trawlers. Each funnel colour linked to a particular owner. So whenever a Steam trawler was on the coast it would be spotted as one of their own immediately. This article was written by Bill Blow who has an extensive knowledge of steam trawlers.
