Corran

Postby Whickham » Sun Oct 18, 2015 10:11 am

The Highland ferry CORRAN being finished off in the William Wright Dock at Hull in early 2001. I looked her up in Miramar to find the builder so that I could post her in the correct builder's folder, only to find that they have her as built by George Prior at Great Yarmouth. Could I have taken these photos at GY, surely not. The GARDYLOO in the second photo was the clincher to this being Hull. Further Googling and I found that the order was placed with George Prior Engineering (Yorkshire) Ltd of Hull. Problem solved. But I wonder where in Hull she was constructed?

IIRC it was at the old Yorkshire drydock site on Dock office row, but I stand to be corrected.

Here are two photos of her in service on the Corran narrows, Loch Linnhe 06/07/09

CORRAN is the only completion I have noted for 'Prior Hull'.

Thanks George, I suspected that might be the case.
