    Unsure of the history, from what I understand it used to be a sewage boat along the Thames, however it has been disused for some years now. I have looked online to find some history, but unfortunately to no avail. Also, if you have a spare £96k the boat is currently for sale. ;)

    The Day:
    We was in the area to look at the old Barking power stations, however staff were not leaving us alone so we had to walk off. Before checking out the other site, we decided to check out the boat, which turned out to be a lot of fun...

    So here's an outline of her history and details.
    Built by Babcock Marine of Appledore (yard number as19), she was launched on 14th September 1966, and entered service for Bowker and King Ltd as Beechcroft, a name she kept until taking her present name in 1990. She has passed through the hands of several different owners since then and her present owner is listed as Thames Fuels Ltd. Her role in life isn’t entirely clear as she is listed in various sources as “Tanker”, “Oil Products Tanker”, “Port Bunkering Tanker” or “Water Tanker”. The last one looks most likely – probably an effluent tanker. Her IMO number is 6619932 and she is 595 gross tons, 833 deadweight tons. He current flag is listed as Honduras (port of registry San Lorenzo) and she appears to have been laid up at Dagenham for quite some time.
