    Sputniks are a class of medium-sized fishing boat, built from the mid 1950s until the late 1970s. They were intended to replace the old steam trawlers but the state of the trawling business in the 1960s also forced them into other forms of fishing at which they, and the slightly larger Spinningdales, proved highly capable. This tribute to the pocket trawlers contains a brief history, many photographs and comprehensive listings with information about each vessel built.
