About this equipment

originally build as seagoing hopper and converted into a trailer in 1968

I was the Captain of this ship in 1981/4, I would like to point out that the engine bhp was 1,750. originally she had two 750 bhp Blackstone engines, but when converted to a tshd the starboard engine was replaced with a 1,000 bhp Blackstone engine to counterbalance the drag of the suction pipe. I know this ship was still working in 2008, I would be interested to know if she still is. Name: Colin Boardman
