Crabtree built Coasters

This Great Yarmouth yard built a virtually standard design at the end of WW1. They were 130 footers, engines aft, and I have identified at least five built to similar plans.

Mary Aiston/Glen Helen.

Mary Aiston II/Halladale/Glen Spray



Camm/Glenspray/President de Lavit

I know the histories of most of the above apart from the Camm - can anybody point me to her final fate - she was sold to French owners and appears in the 1945 Lloyds Register as being in Enemy Territory and therefore surveys were delayed! Port of Registry at the time was Bordeaux.

Any more I have missed?

I am looking desperately for a tug built by Crabtree 1918 sold to Germany about 1920. It might be the missing Hull number 168. Can you help pls Hans
