Built in 1894 by Gibsons of Fleetwood, Naiad PL57 is a Morecambe Bay Nobby boat, that worked out of the Isle of Man. I believe it is currently at Skipool Creek for further work to be done on it. Seen here a couple of years ago on the River Mersey.
The Nobby Boat was a traditional inshore fishing boat, first seen around 1840 in Morecambe bay and down as far as Southport, working the coastal areas trawling for shrimps. Later on there was also a Manx variant.
