Hi,

Can anyone give me some details of the mv Instow which is operating in the North Sea areas off Inverness / Aberdeen please.?

She looks like an ex RN vessel and when I saw her (see photo in gallery) she was carrying what appeared to be a decompression chamber aboard, and was moored in the Muirtown Basin at Inverness.

Any info appreciated..!!

Cheers,

Rushie.

Ahoy Rushie,
The only ones I know are a dredger built in 1965 and a RMAS A309 diving tender.So I think you've got here the Instow from the RMAS.

Ahoy Cynter & Rushie,

Just lucky to have "some/few" piccies and databank, that's all, and if not at my PC, "Google" around untill I find it.But once again this was just luck.
Glad to be helpful as always, and "still" be able to do it.(*))

Mv Instow

That is not the MV Instow, the Dredger. I was Chief Engineer of the Dredger which worked in the Bristol channel and it was a Suction dredger. It was used mostly on dredging Sand for the building industry.

I was on Holiday relief for AB's and cook on the Instow, when she worked out of Hull 1973.
She was a aggregate suction dredger, working off the mouth of the Humber.
Does anyone have a photo of her or details of company and her fate

be obliged
