FCB18 is one of hundreds of barges made of ferro-concrete during the first and second World Wars to economise on wood and steel. Very little is known of her working life as such vessels were widely seen and unregarded. However it is thought she would have regularly plied her trade as a dumb barge on the Manchester Ship Canal. The vessel is now an exhibit at the Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port.
