It is believed she was built in Canada in 1943 for the Royal Navy and has spent most of her working  life in and around Weymouth and Portland. She was built with a strengthened hull for working with cables and chains and was probably used in the Second World War for deploying barage balloons around Portrland Harbour as well as general duties ferrying troops and equipment.
