Re: WW1 Trawler found in Falmouth Bay.

There seems to be a difference of opinion about this wreck.
It would seem that in later years in WW2 another ship hit a mine and sank on top of the WW1 trawler and some years ago that ship was looked at and the diver says that dispute the second event the hull of the WW1 trawler was intact. It is therefore disputed that this trawler could have been sunk by mine as there would most certainly be damage to the hull.
A second trawler the "Tulip II" is now said to be this trawler and a second site in the Falmouth Bay is where the "St. Ives" is resting. The question of which trawler is which is it seems still open.
