Below 3 images causing doubt as to her change of name (officially recorded as having taken place primo 1983) - River Tees – 11 November 1982. Now, pray, sir, tell me her name! (Ron Mapplebeck)

Is it CHERRYBOBS as they are just starting to paint on?

cherrybobs-3-111182x2

… or still HAWESWATER? …

cherrybobs-3-111182x3

… or even back to LAUMUHLEN perhaps? … The answer is found below:

cherrybobs-3-230183x1

Although Miramar (presumably based on Lloyd’s Register) renders her name as two words CHERRY BOBS, that is incorrect. The above photo, taken on 23 January 1983, shows it as the one word CHERRYBOBS, as had also applied for two predecessors of the same name. (Ron Mapplebeck)

This come into the category …. I’m very pleased to see this one! I had seen her myself on 19 August 1965 but had not photographed her. I’m fairly sure she was among the various miscellaneous craft we saw on the Tees involved in the early days of North Sea oil exploration. (Ron Mapplebeck)

HARBURG – 1967 – IMO 6716675

phtfcplus

HARBURG (6716675), West Germany, 499 grt, completed Hamburg 7-1967 (according to Miramar). – Big bit of doubt here over the above completion date. Why?

The German coaster HARBURG is reputed to have been the first “container ship” to use the Tees, and berthed at Middlesbrough Wharf. In the photo,  on 6 June 1967 (I have double-checked that this was the correct date of my sighting), the Tees Floating Crane assists her operations. In the background the NORSEMAN is fitting out at the Furness shipyard, Haverton Hill.

Comment from Webmariner: According to IHS SeaWeb, she entered into service the day before – 05.06.1967. Assuming this is correct, she’s on her maiden voyage.

In addition, to support the photo date claimed, the bulker NORSEMAN (IMO 6721084) was launched from Cammell Laird & Co (Shipbuilders & Engineers) Ltd., Birkenhead, on 20.05.1967; and delivered from Furness S.B. Co. Ltd. , Middlesbrough, on 14.11.1967.
