Artist's Description

The hulk of the Clairain FD119, a former Fleetwood fishing trawler, left to rot on Fleetwood Marsh Lancashire UK.
Originally this trawler was called the Lau Ann (FD.119 ex GY.119) and was owned by Jack Robinson from 1983 until 1985. In 1985 she was sold to trawler-men in Fleetwood. She was later sold to a local called Dave Rainford and renamed as Clarain.
She ran ashore somewhere at the top of the estuary channel near Fleetwood and suffered quite a lot of keel damage. No longer seaworthy, she was taken out of commission in February 1989. She ended up laid in the quay for a while before being laid to rest on Fleetwood Marshes where she lays today, decaying.
Taken on a day out with bubbler friend Lilian Marshall
