The Three-Day Millionaires – by Dr Alec Gill

At the height of Hull’s trawling industry, the port’s three-day millionaires returned
home determined to spend their hardearned pay and live life to the full. After three gruelling weeks at sea, they had lots of money to spend in a short time.

With their pockets bulging, they splashed their cash on flamboyant suits, drinks all round, lavish gifts to their kids and backhanders to friends.

Set against these joys were the woes of landing in debt, drunkenness, fights with the police, worried wives, trawler tragedies and love-hate feelings about returning to sea
once more.
