Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Irish Skipper Expo exhibitor BOPP has forged a strong relationship with the Irish fishing industry, which includes the recent supply of deck equipment packages to the trawlers Mary Paul and Danny Finn.

BOPP is a specialist in the design and manufacturing of winches, net drums, gilsons, landing cranes, and hydraulic power-packs for all kinds of fishing vessels. For the 25m trawler, Mary Paul, the equipment included three split winches, one double split drum and two double compact net drums, along with various winches and a landing crane. The package also included steering gear, bow thruster and autotrawl system.

The equipment package for the 28m trawler Danny Finn included three split winches, three double net drums and two single net drums. A range of gilsons winches were also installed, as well as an autotrawl system and bow thruster.

David Thepaut of BOPP said: “Irish Skipper Expo 2022 will form a great showcase for the fishing industry and we are looking forward to attending the event and discussing with skippers their deck machinery requirements.”
