No. 39 is a narrowboat or day boat, constructed circa 1920 by an unknown builder. Her hull is carvel built of pitch pine with oak frames and planking fastened with clenched and roved iron nails. She has a pointed bow with a plumb straight stem and a pointed stern. She was built to be towed and thus has no engine. She was owned by Stewarts & Lloyds and worked carrying steel between Bilston and Halesowen on the Birmingham Canal Navigation. After service, she moved to Ellesmere Port and, in 2007, was seen resting on the bottom, filling with water and in poor and deteriorating condition.
