James No.96
I put this question on the site last year sadly with out any feedback.
As we have many new members now I would like to ask the question again.
James No.96 was built in 1939 and she was originally owned by James Contracting and Shipping which was later bought by the Westminster Dredging Company.
She was a hopper barge but was later converted into a trailing suction dredger and renamed Merstone.
I knew her well as she worked on the Mersey for many years.
In the late seventies she was bought by Sociedade Portuguesa de Draggens,
Lisbon, Portugal a subsiduary company of WDC and renamed Marinha.
As far as I know she was still working for them in the late nineties.
After that I believe she was broken up.
Can anybody confirm her eventual demise and I would be very grateful of
a photo of her.

Best regards
