I have seen her quite a few times in Liverpool and this is the best picture I have despite having taken her picture on a number of occasions.
She was built by the Montrose Ship Building Company in 1913 for the Orient Lighterage Company and was originally going to be called Viking.
Before she was launched she was sold to the Admiralty and renamed Terrier and until 1948 worked in Chatham Docks and on the Medway.
In 1948 she was sold by the Admiralty to new owners and renamed Kerne. Later she was sold to the Straits Steamship Company of Liverpool and worked in and around the docks and on the River Mersey for them and a number of other owners until 1971 when she was retired from service.
She was subsequently saved from scrap and painstakingly restored by a group of enthusiasts.
GT = 62.71, NT = 1.25 and Displacement = 153.
She is 77 feet long and 18 feet wide with a 3 Cylinder Triple Expansion engine (400bhp) and has a single cast iron three bladed propeller.
