I have her on file by Michael and here is the caption from Riversea ... she had moved down from Hartlepuddle ... not sure where she went after this.

Thanks to some great detective work by Philip Simons, she can be identified as
ABLE ONE
1955 by Smiths Basin Shipyard, Florida as ST2115 FORT MOULTRIE
One of a group of four sisters sold from the Marchwood naval base in 1993.

I am sure MG will favour us with his photos of her as FORT MOULTRIE.
Cheers, George

Doesn't look as though there has been any work done on her since I last saw her in Hartlepool in about 2005. If she doesn't have an engine, I wonder if the plan is for her to be a live aboard - eventually. Would explain the extensive railings.

I presume she did move on from Whitby?

Well spotted Patrick, up by the shipyard, must have a look when next that way (which isn't often).

I was sent this link which shows that she has had a new coat of grey primer to her superstructure:
