Can anyone tell me with certainty if this tanker (ex Wilks) is still on the go as I have lost trace of her about a year ago.

I remember a Teesdale H on the Tyne in the 1950's, it was either a bunker vessel or a tank cleaning vessel. Could it still be going after all these years.

Thanks but the one I am interested in was converted from a dry cargo coaster called WILKS originally built in the 1970's.

Remember seeing teesdal h in gosport alongside the mod jetty isnow called the \sd teesdale could this be the same ship. If so she is still on the go.

Thank you for this. It could answer the question. There was a possibility that if she was declared "for harbour use only" then she becomes no longer recorded in the usual sources such as Lloyd's Register. That is what I had guessed at and perhaps now if she is the vessel you mention and under Serco Denholm then that is why not readily traceable.

I have since checked the SD TEESDALE name on the Equasis website and yes it is the same vessel gaining this name in 12.2007 and owned by Serco Ltd, Greenock

Thanks again folks

Hi Graham,

That was an earlier vessel of the same name.
