GENERAL IV Ship No 222 built at the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb Ltd and launched in 1936
Last heard/seen at Bowling Harbour half sunk just a hull sitting in water now wasting away a bit similar to the state of the SCOT II BEFORE SHE WAS MOVED TO THE Caledonian Canal (Whatever happened to the rescue attempts to restore the SCOT II)
Seems like the same story with the old GENERAL IV very similar lines to the SCOT II as well and looks like there is no one around to attempt a restoration project on this fine old Steam Tug.You will see a photograph of her here from early this year.
Do not know how she has ended up here but there was another far more recent tug that also sank at Bowling Harbour
We cannot save then all, but still a shame to see such fine plate work rusting away.
