You never know how long a link will last, so here are the lyrics:

THE JACINTA
(Alan Bell)

Now her keel was laid one morning in the year of '72,
In a famous yard in Wallsend, where the men were skilled and true.
They rivetted and welded, good steel sheets upon her frame,
'Til at last she was completed, and Jacinta is her name.

CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning,
She is homeward bound returning,
She is homeward bound returning,
From,
The sea,
The Arctic Sea,
The Norway Sea,
The Irish Sea.

She was one of seven sisters in the bold Marr family,
Bill Taylor was her skipper, on her maiden trip to sea.
For to fish the coast of Greenland, and the distant Norway shore,
For Cod and Hake and Haddock, all to fill the fishroom store.
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

Young Mick Southwell was the Bo'sun, old George Thompson engineer
Brian Baxter was a deckhand and he helped stow away the gear.
As she fished across the oceans, she sailed so wild and free,
She was a great stern trawler; soon a legend of the sea.
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

In the darkness of the winter, in the terrible ice and storms,
Her crew worked hard to free her, and to keep themselves from harm.
As she fished across deep waters she did serve her owners well,
Catching fish worth millions in the heavy rolling swells,
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

Now Jacinta went on fishing,'til her engine let her down.
We've towed her home to Fleetwood, for to rest in her home town.
We will paint her and we'll moor her all along her own quayside,
She'll show new generations how we fished the seas with pride.
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

The Alan Bell recording is shorter and considerably different from what I posted above. Here's what I hear on the recording:

THE JACINTA
(Alan Bell)

Now her keel was laid one morning in the year of '72,
In a famous yard in Wallsend, where the men were skilled and true.
And they rivetted and welded, good steel sheets upon her frame,
'Til at last she was completed, and Jacinta is her name.

CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning,
She is homeward bound returning,
She is homeward bound returning,
From
The sea,
The Arctic Sea,
The Norway Sea,
The Irish Sea.

She was one of seven sisters in the bold Marr family,
Bill Taylor was her skipper, on her maiden trip to sea.
For to fish the coast of Greenland, and the distant Norway shore,
For Cod and Hake and Haddock, all to fill the fishroom store.
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

Young Mick Southwell was the Bo'sun, old George Thompson engineer
Brian Baxter was the deckie (deckhand) and he helped stow away the gear.
As she fished across the oceans, she did serve her owners well,
Catching fish worth millions in the heavy rolling swells,
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc

Now Jacinta went on fishing,'til her engine let her down.
We've towed her home to Fleetwood, for to rest in her home town.
And we'll paint her and we'll moor her all along her own quayside,
She'll tell new generations how we fished the seas with pride.
CHORUS
She is homeward bound returning etc (twice)

The Jacinta is a part of Fleetwood history and is open to the public. It is used as a venue during the Fylde Folk Festival, and from time to time through the year
The Jacinta

Jacinta was eventually re-engined and was able to travel from Fleetwood to various maritime events around the UK, including attendance at the Spithead Review in 2005. However stricter regulations and insurance costs, and the difficulty of recruiting suitably skilled crew mean it is no longer possible to do this, so the vessel is again confined to the Fish Dock in Fleetwood.

Brian Baxter, mentioned in the third verse, was the elder brother of Ron Baxter (Sailor Ron on Mudcat). Brian worked on trawlers till a winch-block tore out of the deck and smashed his leg. He then continued working at sea on survey ships till he retired. Like many fishermen of his generation who saw trawler owners well rewarded for de-commissioning their ships follwing the Icelandic Cod Wars, he was denied compensation for many years until a belated scheme brought an award - just a few weeks before he died. The last time I met him was on board the Jacinta, at our annual Fylde Festival concert when he showed us some great pictures from his time on the trawlers.
