The Lost Trawlermen Fishing Memorial - Ship to Shore Concept

Brief and general background - The Ship to Shore concept was a design that was first begun by InterTech in 2010.

To those people asking why this concept had not been submitted to the design competition for a memorial arranged by the Fishing Heritage Group "STAND" in Hull, we can say this:

(1) We were unaware of the competition at the time we were preparing the design.

(2) We understand - after looking at the competition rules - that we would have not been eligible to enter.

(3) And further to this we would have not achieved the deadline because our concept design is still ongoing. 

It took about 8 months to research and develop a concept that would reflect what the affected families would expect - especially when any funding for this memorial would be driven by donations.
