This original acrylic painting by Hull artist David Sandell shows the steam trawler Plutarch, H724, in rough seas on Dogger Bank. Built at Beverley, East Yorkshire, in 1903 for Hellyer Steam Fishing Company of Hull, Plutarch had an overall length of 130 feet, and a beam of 22 feet. Weighing 270 tons, Plutarch was powered by a coal fired triple expansion engine developing 78 horse-power, giving a top speed of just over ten knots. Plutarch fished the North Sea out of Hull until 1912, when she was sold to Dutch owners and renamed Enestine Pauline. The vessel was posted missing on the 27th July 1917, presumably sunk by a mine in the North Sea.
