The former US crane barge spent many years moored off Hythe in Southampton water. Back then the barge was known as Pine Ridge and is now the Apache. The Apache appeared to be undergoing some maintainance and had been in Portsmouth naval base for a short time (for docking??) One assumes the Apache is now based out of the breakers yard.

The pier in the image was where for many years ex RN O boats were moored to. The inner berth of the pier was where the former sub Artemis lay for well over a decade until the early 1990s.
