Parkol ship builders’ latest project took to the water today in an elaborate operation.
Crowds gathered to watch from various parts of the town as trawler Our Lass III was lowered into the harbour at Whitby by crane.
For many months the boat has been under the cover of tarpaulin and scaffolding while under construction.
It is owned by Lockers Fish and is the biggest trawler built in the UK for eight years and is also the largest of Parkol’s projects.
