There used to be one of these moored at Stockton, the owner who had a garage near to St Johns Crossing at Stockton went up to Rosyth to pick her up, she was in this standard configuration for a while until he had the Bridge enlarged. I wonder if this is the same one?

MFV1190 Ex Admiralty was bought by Two of the partners of Marine Partners. Purchased from Bowling in Scotland early 80s to be used for angling parties and wreck fishing, however I think they had it for about eighteen months and then sold it on to be converted to a houseboat on the river Medway.

The MFV at Stockton was owned by Mr Robson who had a Garage near St Johns Crossing, he also had a larger garage premises alongside the River Tees at Stockton where his Ex Admiralty MFV was moored along with a 60ft Triple screwed either ex RN or ex RAF Pinnace that belonged to a Lemonade Maker who died on board due to Carbon Monoxide poisoning along with another ;)
Mr Robson had various vessels during his lifetime the last being based at Hartlepool Marina until recently. A really nice Chap big in heart and stature which led him to enlarge the Wheelhouse of the Standard MFV.

As an afterthought for those who are not local to Stockton on Tees but are also interested in the Railway system as well as Shipping, St Johns Crossing holds a prominent place in World Railway history as alongside the Crossing is the Worlds first Ticket Office adjoining the famous Stockton to Darlington Railway.
Now a listed Building it is still used and is now a Hostel for those who life has not treated kindly.
The Crossing was put in across the Stockton to Thornaby Road to facilitate access For Railway Traffic to and from Stockton Quay which was well known to those who sailed on Coasters and local Ship Spotters alike.
During the late 1940/50's Stockton Quay was also well known for the Import of the lighter end of Battlefield Scrap like Rifles, Machine Guns etc which had been previously decommissioned by having their Breaches Sawn through and Firing Pins removed. They also required their Furniture removed by local Scrapyards (where appropriate) before going through their Hydraulic Cutters into small chunks for sorting and then on to the local Steelworks along with scrap from locally scrapped Warships.
I remember well the Crossing in operation and the piles of Weapons in the open Railway Trucks which if you were so inclined you could acquire as Security was a bit lax but nobody seemed to bother. Now those weapons would be worth a fortune.
