Dredger Elderslie question

Post by japottinger » Sun Oct 14, 2012 5:44 pm

Curious here, Clyde built database and Lloyds have Elderslie as built in 1924? Was she rebuilt, or is this a later one of same name.

Last night was Clyde Shiplovers meeting. Asked around about the second dredger named ELDERSLIE. General opinion she came from Associated British Ports to Clydeport and was previously named CALATRIA ???and after her sale by Clydeports was renamed BENNY HILL. Hope this help track her down.. Colin

1961, 1033grt by PK Harris, Aooledore (129) as CALATRIA for British Transport Commission.
I believe she was the Garston-based dredger
1963 British Transport Docks Board
1982 CPA as ELDERSLIE
1994 BENNY HILL
1997 GARRIO .... not showing in Equasis.
