When I worked offshore on oil platforms I was safe in a storm, but I watched trawlers being tossed about,risking life and limb.Since then I've always supported them and in my book, they are the tops. Whoever started this name change should spend a night on a trawler in gale force 10. There are too many rules for British fishing including heavy taxes on boat length forcing a reduction in length, net sizing etc yet we allow foreign countries to do as they wish including taking what they want and ramming our boats.. Sore point with me.|
