STELLA CARINA H573

Fact File

11 Mar 1959 Whilst outward bound for Norwegian fishing grounds the Stella Carina was in collision with the collier Mendip in the River Humber off Victoria Dock,

The Stella Carina sustained a gash 22 ft deep and 3 ft wide in her port side and began to sinking by the stern.

The quick thinking of Skipper Fred Sullivan averted tragedy,with the Chief engineer working up to his waist in water in the engine room , the skipper turned the stricken trawler towards the shore and beached her near to Victoria Dock.

With the trawler sinking deeper in the water the 20 crew used inflatable life-rafts to get clear of the ship and they were picked up by a Pilot cutter.

It took over 2 months to salvage the the trawler, she returned to sea in Sept -1959.

The other ship , Mendip, had little damage, and proceeded to Grimsby
