CHUN PING

Ship No 125

Was an order from Priestman Bros Ltd, She was a Twin Grab Hopper Dredger, at 426 tons this was a sizable vessel for the yard at the time, with a length overall of 139 feet and 6 inches, and a beam of 29 feet 6 inches.

This was launched in December 1928, bringing to an end the first eventful 10 years of the yard, a decade that had seen a lot of growth, with the yard at this time having 6 building berths that launched into the sea.

I have been unable to find any photographs up to now.
