Isabel was of course the Collin and was purchased by the Tay Sand Co. in, I think, 1964. Over the Christmas and New Year holiday in 1965-6? she capsized against the north wall of the Camperdown Dock. It would appear that she was actually holed on passage from the Middle Bank to the Dock entrance but the crew were in such a hurry to get away they didn't check and she flooded and turned over in the night. The funnel and wheelhouse were smashed against the quay.

She was always tender as her sand tank had vertical sides, whereas the usual rule was to taper the sides so that the tank was wider at the bottom than the top.

She was gradually cut up where she lay.

ISOBEL (O.N.136355), 287grt 107n was a product of A. Jeffrey & Co at Alloa in 1915 with a compound by the builders. She was renamed ISABEL in 1949 when bought by the Isabel Steamship Co Ltd, Cardiff and converted to a suction dredger, I believe July 1949 at Appledore. She replaced the ISABEL (O.N.109434) at Cardiff.
