History

1971: Completed by John Lewis & Sons Ltd, Aberdeen (Yd No. 368), for Don Fishing Co. Ltd.
1978: At the end of this year she was pair trawling with the GLENELG BCK272
1988: Sold to Stephen Whelan, Blackpool & Others.
1996: Three quarter length shelter deck was fitted at Fleetwood.
20.02.2011: Ran aground in the entrance to Fleetwood Dock Channel. The inshore vessel BLUE MINK came to help and fouled her propeller whilst trying to offer assistance. The BLUE MINK was towed into the Marina by the ALB.
At 11pm, both lifeboats were launched again, to stand by ISADALE to make sure that her re-floating on the midnight tide would be trouble-free. The trawler floated off unassisted watched by the volunteer lifeboat crew and the Coastguard team.
Undated: Registered as FD177.
