HULL TRAWLER MISHAP

TOWED INTO PORT WITH BROKEN PROPELLOR SHAFT

The Hull Trawler Cornelian owned by Kingston Steam Trawling Co Ltd when outward bound to the fishing grounds, sustained a broken propellor shaft. The mishap occured when she was some 30 or 40 miles from Spurn Point. Her plight came to the notice of the Grimsby trawler Olympia which took her in tow and brought her into the Humber. From the Grimsby roads in the river the tug Superman owned by United Towing Co of Hull relieved the Grimsby boat and towed the Cornelian to Hull where she is being repaired.
