- 1929 Sabina H
SABINA H was built in 1929 as a 100 ton dumb tanker barge by Richard Dunstons of Thorne. She was then rebuilt as a motorised tanker barge in 1934 by Harkers of Knottingley and in 1934 registered at Hull No.163184 as gross tonnage of 68 tons, powered by a 36 BHP engine.
SABINA H was used as a petrol tanker running to Brig on the River Ancholm until the late 1950's or early 1960's, when she was then sold to Peter Horlock, of Mistley, and eventually sold out of trade.
She was re-decked circa 1960 with her bow replated in the 1990s to her original frames and lines, with some bottom doubling and some hull plating repairs included. A larger wheelhouse and a new engine was installed in the 2000s.
SABINA H has always worked on UK waters, the first 20 plus years in the Humber area, then Suffolk and Essex coasts for a further 30 years. She then was sold into private ownership before becoming derelict in the Thames during the 90's, then recovered and extensively restored, firstly ashore in Barking, then at Benfleet.
