FAIRPORT

Ship No 20

A Single Screw Dredger for Arbroath T.C. was next to be built; she was 91 gross tons, and 78 feet 6 inches in length, by 17 feet 6 inches in breadth.
Henry Robb did not go over to Metric measurements until the early 1970’s and even then Ships for The Royal Navy were still to be done in Imperial measurements.
I don’t have any photo’s as yet as she was launched such a long time ago, it must have been around the early 1920’s so if anyone out there has a pic or any further info then please feel free to get in touch.

The Hebe
Ship No 482 (1962)
