The Humber had quite a few small ship-builders on it, one of the more well known old ships was the Trafalgar veteran HMS Anson, she was built at Paul just to the east of Hull, a row of cottages - Anson Villas mark roughly were the yard was.
I would think the minesweeper you saw may be one of the Tons, Cook Welton and Gemmell built them on the River Hull at Beverley, they built small ships ( but rather large for the River Hull) from 1883 to 1963, as well as military ships they built large numbers of trawlers and tugs, getting something as large as a Trawler down the River Hull - about 10 miles - was a work of art and took more than one tide.
As an example of the range of their work CWG built the Bronnington in 1953 and that well known seaside trip boat the Yorkshire Belle in 1947

It must have made a good day out ,in those day,s to see a ships fall off the blocks ,[is that what you would call it ]
I notice that on A.I.S ,you can't see up the river , unlike the Mersey .
