A trawler ship is launched in novel fashion into the water at a shipyard.
Full title reads: "Yorkshire. Launched Sideways! and not without a spice of danger!! Trawler 'Welsbach' takes the water in novel style."
Shots of a large trawler ship sitting on the quay in a shipyard. Men work along the keel removing the props that have been holding her in place. As the ship begins to move down the ramp a last few workmen duck under the hull to avoid ending up squashed. There is a big splash as the ship hits the water.
