as explained in the companion application for guidance
of the haul-out line and net, while paired upstanding line

This invention relates to a trawling vessel, illustrated
as one intended for catching shrimp, but in no sense to
be understood as limited to such use. In particular the

present invention concerns the means whereby decapitated
shrimp bodies are delivered selectively to appropriate
hold spaces wherein they are refrigerated and held until
operable, coaxially disposed drums oriented athwartwise.
The drums 61a, 61b carry the trawl warps T1, T2 where
by the net is dragged during trawling such warps running
through guide blocks 96a, 96h and over opposite sides
of the vessel, near stanchions S1, S2 where water reaction
the vessel reaches a market.
Companion applications have explained how the net
is hauled in and reset, and how the catch is segregated
doors are secured when the net is hauled in. Drums 62a,

to the net in lieu of the trawl warps in the latter phase of
hauling in, and central drum 63 reels in the net itself.

through the main hatch upon raising the hatch cover 80,
or through the auxiliary hatch upon raising the smaller
hatch cover 81. Also, these chutes must not hinder rais

The main hatch cover 80 is hinged along its forward
edge, at 83, to the hatch coaming 8. It can be in its
closed and secured position, as shown in FIGURE 6 in
full lines, or in its open position, as shown in dot-dash

lines. The smaller auxiliary hatch cover 81 is hingedly
