Thanks for the "Boats That Built Britain". Normally I can't get BBC i-player programs in France without paying for access through a proxy site.

I learnt to sail at Whitby 55 years ago and used to welcome the Banff and Fraserburgh drifter fleets every summer as they arrived to follow the fish down the North Sea. They were all traditional looking wooden boats in those days. The steel-built Dutch boats that also came to Whitby looked very different - bigger, more powerful and a bit alien.

Keep posting please. It's a great story! Patrick
