    George Summers (Skipper)




From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 10th June 1904:



 MISHAPS. On Wednesday morning the steam trawler Jeanie [sic], of Milford, was steaming up the docks to get to the fish market when her intermediate shaft broke. A few days ago the Narberth Castle was going out of the docks to go to sea when the engine refused to answer to the telegraph full speed ahead.  In consequence, she collided with the steam trawler Escallonia, with the result that her bulwarks on the starboard side were damaged.


[ There was no Milford steam trawler of the name of JEANIE. ]
