TROUTBANK

William Petch. commented….

The Fish class vessels were in my opinion the best bankline ships built .Their Doxford 4 CYLINDER 670 J type engineswere a joy to sail with, once you got used to the starting & manouvering technique. Also working on the engine units for unit overhauls was quite labòur intensive. BUt boy did you enjoy a few beers afterwards!!!!

  1. Great class of ships, did 3 trips on Pikebank. Solid reliable Doxford J6. Sadly the decision to convert the generators to blended fuel was a disaster, what it saved in fuel cost was more than lost in shortened lifetime/drastically increased maintenance costs.
