TCC FLOATING CRANE

The floating crane was in regular use on the river in the post war years,loading heavy lifts and on at least one occasion lightening a ship stranded in the river. Where she ended her days however seems a bit of a mystery.

I believe that she may have been built on the Tyne by Palmers Hebburn during the war. Built as MOWT No 4 in 1942, using mainly prefabricated parts provided by other companies.

And a fine pair of tugs in attendance, a nice contrast between designs and companies.

The final demise of the TEES FLOATING CRANE has been provided by member Teesships and has now been added to her record on Tyne Built Ships.
