February 8th

On 8th February 1834, as well as directing ships into harbour at Hull, the Humber Pilots’ work for the day included relaying the Chequer buoy and surveying.

On 8th February 1974, Hull trawler Gaul gave her last position report to the trawler’s owners before she was reported missing. Suggestions were dismissed at inquiry that she was involved in espionage or was in a collision. Link is to a short film about the Gaul. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQlSaCf5tWA
