funny..all those years of SAR and assistance towing even commercial vessels...


about 99% of the time I hear Fishing Vessels call themselves fishing vessel "XYZ" ....not trawler "XYZ " or pot vessel "XYZ" or troller "XYZ" or shrimper "XYZ".....


Thankfully they don't care who uses what term...for people I wouldn't necessarily expect to know what a pleasure trawler looks like then I use it because it helps more than hurts... using trawler helps distinguish me from the pack.
