WILFRED is a twin screw motorised general cargo carrier, built by J. Piper of East Greenwich in 1926. Her official number was 149696. She previously had a Bergius diesel engine with two cylinders and eighty-eight brake horsepower, but is now fitted with a Kromhout 90 kilowatt engine. From 1926 to 1949, she worked in the sand and ballast trade under the ownership of Thomas Scholey & Co. Ltd., out of Dawson Wharf, Greenwich. Her sister ships were PIP and SQUEAK. During this time, in 1938, she was converted to a motor barge. In 1953, she was re-named STARGATE and sold to Rochester Trading Co. to trade in general cargoes. However, she retired from the trade in 1970 and passed into private ownership. In 1983, her name was changed back to WILFRED. She was refurbished in 1991 and started trading as 'El Barco Latino', a restaurant ship moored at Temple Pier on Victoria Embankment, London
