Arctic Corsair

The Arctic Corsair (H320) is a deep-sea trawler that was converted to a museum ship in 1999. It is berthed between Drypool Bridge and Myton Bridge in the river Hull in Hull, England, and is part of the city's Museums Quarter.

Exhibits and guides aboard the boat tell the story of Hull's deep-sea fishing industry.

Famous quotes containing the word arctic:

    Nature confounds her summer distinctions at this season. The heavens seem to be nearer the earth. The elements are less reserved and distinct. Water turns to ice, rain to snow. The day is but a Scandinavian night. The winter is an arctic summer.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
