the survey craft was Enterprise. The intention was that South Tyneside Council would set up a maritime museum based on the former Hawthorn Leslie shipyard at Hebburn using the drydock in which the destoyer Kelly was repaired in. It did not happen. Cavalier was eventually titivated in the dry dock before she was towed to Chatham.
