Marvellous!! Or not, depending on how you looked at it. However, I always found this conversion to one of the first dedicated heavy lift ships absolutely fascinating and I only wish that I had seen her at close quarters.

She ended her days as the Multi Service 300, operating in the offshore business in the Middle East, until scrapped in 1994.

A super photograph Jan. It was obviously taken some time after I piloted her into Ramsgate in 1975 (see my recent posting in Special Service Vessels).
Would this be after she grounded and changed ownership. In this picture she's looking as if she's just come from the ship-yard! Yours, Hugh.

I saw them once in Yarmouth in the 70s and i must admit at the time i was mesmerized and just stared at them (if anyone saw me they must have thought i was some sort o nutter) i was amazed how they could weld 2 coasters together and make one big Jumbo Crane..

Right couple of questions here 1 did they use both sets of steering gear and two engines. 2 did they alway lift form one side using the other ship as a counterweight?

Hi Rob,
Looking at the Structure of the Derrick she can only lift on the Port side as the fixed stays are welded on the stbd side, and i,m sure when underway they used both sets of propulsion and as for steering I,m sure they only used one side. Many times when running up the Rhine we ran with 2 coasters alongside each other both using their engines and only one steering.

As far as I recall, I piloted from the port-side ship wheelhouse with the helmsman on that wheel and the two rudders intergrated. Engines were operated independently. On this occasion (Ramsgate) we went starboard side to, which, I believe, would make it evident that lifts could be landed on either side. The cargo unloaded was a 100 ton boiler for the Phizer company in Sandwich. The list as this was swung outboard was no more than 5 or 10 degrees. A truly brilliant conception for the loading of heavy lifts from berths in places inaccessible to larger ships, and all on a maximum draft of 12ft.

I've had some second thoughts about this after seeing the photo of the lift being landed. She must have gone port side to but I have no record, or recollection of doing that:well, it is 32 years ago!
