Fact File

09 Nov 1966 The St Amant whilst outward bound to the fishing grounds in foggy weather, was in collision in the river Humber with the dredger Skitterness. The St Amant was holed on her starboard side fuel tank, but there was no injury to her crew. She was taken to St Andrews Dock to be prepared for dry docking when on the 13th Nov as fuel oil was been removed from her port side tank by an oil barge alongside the St Amant, she lost stability and capsized onto the oil barge which had a crew of two men. The watchman, steam raiser and three oilmen aboard the trawler managed to get off unhurt as did the bargemen. The St Amant with the aid of the fire brigade, 3 dock tugs : Aurora, Tryton and Zephyr  and winchmen was righted from her 45 degree list after 3 hours pumping and winching. She was later dry docked and repaired returning to sea.

 

Jan 1973 Whilst fishing at Iceland caught her trawl warp around her propellor and radioed for assistance from the fishery protection frigate HMS Lowestoft, The dive team from the Lowestoft were unable to free the warp, deeming it to be too dangerous. The St Amant made her own way to the Faroe Isles at low speed were the warp was freed.
