Hull Now - More Forward Thinking

The Concepts

Ship to Shore Concept

Kingston upon Hull

The 'Ship to Shore Feature' is a concept designed by InterTech. The idea was to show a way of reflecting on the former fishing industry of Hull and remembering the city's lost trawlermen. The designs we have come up with focus on people; our main goal being to create a range of components that make both local people and visitors want to find out more about this arduous way of life.

 
Can a memorial be a place of respect, whilst allowing up and coming generations to connect with what they see? We say "yes" - and we think our designs reflect this.

Take a look at some of the design visuals.
You are welcome to leave your comments using the opinion box below.

This visual shows the steel trawler profile mounted to the quay, which offers a lower budget solution whilst still maintaining the same concept.


Visual shows further option focused on budget with a trawler profile reduced to half size.

Edge of trawler with LED colour-wash lighting to focus and highlight the rust-effect steel


The final result is to give the overall impression of a Hull trawler departing with a crew bound for distant fishing grounds where they would be away for a month at a time. The sad fact was that, for some Hull families, this sight would have been the very last they would have seen of their loved ones.


Picture above shows a small-scale steel prototype silhouette


The prototype was laser cut from 6mm mild steel and is 1150mm long

As an ex-Trawler Skipper myself, I would prefer this concept as it is less abstact than the others, and therefore more regognisable to the general public as a fishing memorial, however, there is one small problem with one of the proposed 'positions' of this piece, if (as in one of the illustrations) it is situated actually in the river, then it would need navigation lights, because even if it is close to shore, as long as there is water between it and the dry land, it constitutes being a 'vessel', and would therefore have to adhere to maritime regulations., I'm not being 'picky' but the simple answer is to have it fixed to the sloping shorline as in the second illustration.

This idea is a true tribute to the lost trawlermen of Hull. The location on St Andrew's Dock is a fitting place for this eye catching memorial. This would be our choice by far. Carole & Rod Ellis

We are aware that there is another design for a Lost Trawlermen's Memorial and that this has been offered free by Inter-Tech to "Stand". However. this was rejected by "Stand" in favour of the "ITEM" which has featured recently in the Hull Daily Mail and the Yorkshire Times. The latter design has unsurprisingly attracted a great number of adverse comments. So now will you please allow everyone to judge for themselves by showing them your design?

No rating between Poor and OK.... I think this idea is good but would be better presented with the real thing... ie: A Trawler... Then it would be a living interact-able feature that people would appreciate more, maybe the Arctic Corsair?

This particular plan envisaged by Andrew Fenton has my wholehearted approval. The centre- piece which is the silhouette of a typical sidewinder immediately captures and holds your attention. When I first saw the 'actual model' it immediately brought to mind the sadness I felt at the time of the triple trawler disaster, and all the other occasions later when trawlers and men (some of whom I had personally known) were lost. The site where the memorial will be positioned has ample room for a walkway and benches for relatives who choose to visit and meditate on the loss of their loved ones. It will serve many other useful purposes too. I believe that a locally based company such as InterTech deserves to be given preference over others further afield. We must never forget the thousands of Hull trawlermen who lost their lives at sea and who were responsible for bringing considerable prosperity to this city. It is imperative now that we forget our differences and unite to show the respect due to these brave men. It can be done, and should be done, without further delay.

This looks a fitting tribute to the lost industry of Hull, and the trawler men, who gave their lives to contribute to this industry, which was sadly sacrificed due to political shinanacins.

My family lived on the Hessle Road and were all employed in the fishing industry from the early 1900 at sea and on the dry side. One thing about the caption of photos of tubs/kettles of fish everyone I knew called them kits and would contain about 10 stone of fish. The concept looks very good however,funds must be available to maintain the area.

Great to see local people designing things for local people. It's an excellent concept and very suiting to the Hull community. I always prefer to see something designed with heart than something designed for cold hard cash. Well Done

My late husband was a fisherman from the age of 14 as were my 2 brothers. They were fishermen for nigh on 40 years. This memorial by STAND does absolutely nothing for me and my 2 brothers. My late husband Harry would have certainly agreed with us. This concept memorial or similar is what we would like. Connect with the fishing community STAND like you should have done before making decisions for us.

There is a silhouette design memorial at the site of Lissett WW2 airfield for the 851 airmen lost from 158 Squadron The memorial has engraved in it all the names of the 851 airmen lost. The trawler silhouette could have similar with the names of all the trawlermen lost from Hull.

I am an x trawler skipper . I lost my uncle Freddy scholars off the Stella Polaris in 1954 leaving behind six children and wife.in allmost the same year my granddad died at sea aboard the ST Onslow the crew brought his body back in the fish room he played the accordion which went missing when the vessel returned to hull.so sad no goodbyes or farewells or kisses

I think this stunning design has real presence and evokes emotion. Even those who have no connection to the fishing industry can't help but be moved by the trawler and what it stands for. This is by far the most fitting. The meaning is not lost in the "art" like the one STAND has put forward. My grandad was a fisherman and i think this design reflects how proud and brave these men were.

I'm not from a fishing family, although have lived in Hull all my life, but think this concept is brilliant and think it is a fitting tribute to all those men that risked their lives and those who lost their lives in treacherous waters in order that this great city of ours and cities around Great Britain always had supplies of fish.

Fantastic design that truly represents what the people of hull want i am proud to say i am married to a ex trawler man and am shocked and disappointed in the city council of hull that has allowed everthing to disappear without a trace lord line should have been made into a museum along with all the other derelict buildings aworking museum would keep all that history alive i hope the lads get this fantastic design up and running soon good on you xx

I come from a fishing family my dad went to sea all his life... it would be wonderful if this memorial could become a reality. Alot of brave and good men have been lost over the years, and i think this would be a fitting tribute. Imagine the impact this would have silhouetted against the waterfront during the day...fantastic. I personally think this one is far superior to the one being planned by S.T.A.N.D. Alot of people, can't connect with the abstract design they have chosen.

As a designer and a person living in Hull I feel this concept is a perfect concept for a memorial. The ship has so much symbolism and holds a lot of emotion... the rusty iron shape... the ideas behind it are so much more appropriate to the fisherman, Hull and culturally as a whole. Abstract impressionist sculptures and shapes do nothing for the fisherman an their families. This concept is my choice by far,
