CONVOY was built by G & T Smith, Rye in 1900 and her Port of Registry was Dover. Her first owner was Frederick Crundall. On 7 June 1923  he sold 64 shares to Archie Jeremiah and his wife, Lillian Rebecca, master mariner of Ipswich.  On 17 March 1932  Lillian sold her shares to Alfred Scully, of Surrey and to George Andrews of Sittingbourne After Mr Sully's death in 1949 the shares pass to his widow and family who consequently buys the remaining shares.   In the following years the shares of Convey change hands to a number of various shareholdes but the Sully's and the Andrews still remained shareholders until their deaths until 1967.  CONVEY was coonverted to a houseboat in 1977 and sold in 1983.
