Admiral Van Tromp

The Admiral Van Tromp was a Scarborough trawler that ran aground on 30-09-1976. The exact circumstance of the accident remain a mystery as the boat was on completely the wrong course and a senior nautical surveyor at the inquest stated it appeared it was driven onto the rocks deliberately. No-one will ever know the real reasons as the man at the wheel John Addison was killed, along with one other crew member.
