The River Ouse running through York must qualify for inclusion in NEM, so the following show four of the YorkBoat vessels in service yesterday, 3 July 2015.

RIVER KING (built 1984):

In the first photo of the RIVER DUCHESS a fifth unit of the fleet can just be seen berthed on the river bank. This is the CAPTAIN JAMES COOK, built 1975. Comparison of photos of him at: http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/York-Boat.html indicates this is the same vessel captured on the Tees by Albert Weller around October 1975 when still a new vessel.
