Do'es anyone know anything about the s.f.Pearce. She was an old sailing ship.She was turned into a sand hopper on the river mersey in the 50s.She was owned by William Cooper sand and gravel. She used to load from a bucket dredger off New Brighton, for Pamona dock Manchester,Widnes,and albert dock Liverpool. I would very much like to know a bit of her history before she became hopper.
