The galley buzz doing the rounds says that she is on charter to peel operated by GPS. But this is unconfirmed.

Also. the cab of Mammoth, sorry LARA 1 is painted bright yellow

If thats the case, the question must be asked, why did Peel Ports flog it off in the first place, claiming, per a company spokesman that it was 'Old and knackered'
Furthermore, it does not seem to have moved in two weeks, so a charter doesnt make much sense.
Regards,
Pat

Her first job on arrival was to work on Gladstone lock gates. I would expect to see her working on the 12 Quays when the repairs are ready to proceed.

I was under the impression that she was sold because she would not pass the 25year survey,because she had grounded and had damage on bottom.

Having looked through the previous posts I wonder if any of you are interested in the attached pics of the MSCCoy 250 ton crane passing Statham in the Canal, just above Latchford Locks. Taken by me in May 1937 with an old 'Box Brownie' type camera. Things aint like they used to be!,
Regards ,Allan.

Its an amazing piece of machinery Allan, I saw it moored at Runcorn about four years ago. I wonder if it is still there, or has it now gone for scrap.
Regards,
Pat

Very close to the real reason here
