Old-timer at Goole?

Postby teesships » Tue May 01, 2018 12:25 pm

Interesting old-time vessel seen in Goole yesterday.
Looking at her through my zoom lens I got the impression her hull was built of concrete .... but I could be completely wrong!
Can anyone identify her with name and career details, please?

Ron, I thought that title was reserved for me!

Surely you must have seen ABP's old workboat ALPHA many times before, this is her.

I just knew there would be another old-timer out there who would know! Thanks, George.

Is she based at Goole because it is a long time now since I recall seeing her there or anywhere?!

Good to see she's still going strong, even older than either you or I (albeit not by much!!)

Ron, I have been out of touch with her deployments since 2002, whether still with ABP and/or in use, I don't know. She's not looking so good in your new photos. I'm puzzling over the location.

Oh, heck, now I have to find a map of Goole docks!

Location - location - location .... far side of Ouse Dock, photos taken from Lowther Bridge.
I'm sure it will all come back to you before long!

Owned by ABP.
She is lying in Ouse Dock which is her usual berth.
