If I am right Peter, I think this was at one time a Landing Craft from either HMS Fearless or her sister HMS Intrepid, saw one of these in Dale a while back, maybe Dave Barrett can confirm.

the SABRINA was in Swansea about 5 years ago .She called in to do a bit of maintenance on the RIPARIAN, which had been re_arranging the bed of the marina...dredging from the shallow end, and dumping in the deep end, which is now also shallow!! Both vessels owned by Fred Larkham , Chepstow... The SABRINA (ancient name for the river Severn), was equipped for bed levelling, but didn,t work at Swansea...Older fellers will remember Sabrina as being a British actress well endowed in the upper frontal region...happy days!!
