Marinha - Hopper Barge

20th July 2006, 14:26
Can anybody help me with some information regarding the fate of the hopper barge Marinha please?
She was originally employed by Westminster Dredging Company as the James
96 on the River Mersey before being converted into a trailer dredger called
Merstone before being sold overseas. I last heard of her being employed in Portuguese waters with the name Marinha.
Thanks and Regards
