SPURN. Composite twin-screw launch.

Does anyone have a picture of the Humber Conservancy launch, SPURN please.

She was built by Philip and Son Ltd at Dartmouth in 1903 and served on the Humber until 1937 when she was sold to Blyth Harbour Commissioners in 1937.
If you look in the Blyth Section you will see a picture of her as CAMBOIS.

There is an "as built" picture on page 67 of Derek Blackhurst's book on the yard.

At some point she was rebuilt and I'm just curious to know if she was rebuilt, before or after she came to Blyth.

Thanks.

Sorry have nothing other than the one in the Blackhurst book .... but thanks to the pointer back to her as CAMBOIS which I can well use!

That JOHN DENT is a remarkable vessel, just look the the fine 'cabin' on her after deck, that must surely be a saloon for very posh Blyth ladies :)
Cheers, George

I'm not sure that the Posh Ladies of Blyth would use that particular Ferry Route... :lol: :lol:
