29 Jan 1973 Maiden Voyage 24 days Norwegian Coast 1892 kits - Value £25,739

31 Jan 1973 Left Hull for her second trip but her engines broke down and she spent 9 days in Harstad for repairs, selling the 645 kits of fish she had aboard for £3,915, after repair she continued fishing and after 39 days on the 9th Apr she arrived home with 2,467 kits which sold for a world record price of £38,108 

Hammond Innes was the first vessel to break the £50,000 barrier for catch value - another record trip in Feb 1974 22 days trip to Norwegian Coast 4,501 kits - Value £73,216

1974 Spitzbergen trip, vessel again called into Aalesund for repairs, she returned to the fishing grounds and in 10 days caught 5,000 kits of prime cod. There was at the time a Bobbers strike in Hull so she was diverted to Cuxhaven Germany to unload which took almost two days to empty her fish room.

Three days later the bobbers in Hull had returned to work and unloaded 3,000 kits from the Somerset Maugham for a sale value of £60,000.
