Sputnik trawler is a nickname given to two classes of series-built side trawlers. In the mid to late 1950s and early 1960s, these new and revolutionary boats were intended to replace ageing steam trawlers. The little workhorses had to combat the inevitable prejudice against something ground-breaking and also the torrid economic state of the trawling industry in the 1960s. This book is a memorial to the sputniks and Spinningdales, with brief histories and photographs, and some fine fishermen's anecdotes about the multitude of things these boats did during some of the best years the fishing industry will ever know.
