The Dredger was the Piel which was identical to Carronwater and built for the LMS railway in the same year!

Thanks for that, she used to make some eary sounds in the night, when Albion, Bulwark and Wave Knight were launched there seemed very little dredging was done compared to the submarine launches in the 70/80s, don't know what happed to Piel after launches ended about 1988, until the ones mentiond above 10 years later, where dredging was done with a JCB on a barge.

I can remember towing the Carronwater across the Bay of Biscay in January 66 from Falmouth to Ferrol where we left her to carry on her voyage to Bombay....and she made it too. I was deckboy on U.T.C.'s Serviceman. I might have signed on as deckboy but I still had to do a watch on the wheel. We sailed before Xmas and a crew was difficult to find.
