Does anybody have any details or name for this vessel moored for many years just below the Woolwich Ferry crossing on The Thames. I think it was converted into a floating gymnasium but what was it before that. Any help much appreciated.

Looks like an ex Western Ferry running from Gourock to Hunters Quay - believe she was originally Swedish / Norwegian - just a guess ! Bob L

Using names mentioned I found the following details
IMO 7338547
SOOND ex-SOUND OF SCARBA ex-OLANDSSUND III
175gt
built 1960 AB Asi-Verken, Amal

former ferry of Western Ferries (Clyde) Ltd, Dunoon, sold about 2001 to interests trading as \"Octoply\" for conversion to a \"concept ferry\" for use on the River Thames, but has never entered service.

Thanks again
