This boat was converted to a butty in 1951, along with Dace. Possibly paired with Perch, but this is not confirmed. It is now a motor again, with the original stern shape restored.


The boat was subsequently renamed Elaine and liveried by the Bath Stone Co. in 1993 (Elaine was the name of the wife of the owner of the company.) It is now in FMC livery and has been called Dory again since 1996.


Little is known of this boat, which was broken up at Northwich by BWB in the 70's. The reports of the boat still being around are incorrect and actually refer to a newly built BW maintenance boat of the same name. There are several of these around, including Rudd, Skate and Salmon (which wasn't even a Fish boat name first time around!)
