ALA (HERBERT CRAMPIN) - 1966

Postby northeast » Sat Aug 25, 2012 6:51 am

Seen at Goole as ALA on 13/08/2008 in a modernised form, she was built as a motor tug for work in Grimsby Fish Docks.
I am told today that she is now a houseboat on the Thames.
1966, 45gt by Harker under yn324.

Hello there

Beautiful Pictures, lovely to see how she used to look.

She is not a House Boat, she does have a large cabin built above decks but all the running gear is working and in good condition.
She is a mobile workshop, with accommodation.

John Harkers shipyard must have been fine boat builders. She is "very" heavily built.
The engine (ruston and Hornsby VI VEB) was rebuilt 3 years ago and runs very nicely.

Thanks for this S.O.A.R., do you own her?
Would be nice to see photo of her as she is now.
Cheers, George
