    Hi
    I am a member of the friends of LV50, a Trinity House wooden lightship that was built by Fletcher Son and Fearnall at Limehouse dock in 1879 to a design by Bernard Waymouth a Lloyds naval architect.
    We have the original drawings and quite a lot of info – see http://www.friendsoflv50.org.uk
    It would be great to get in touch to expand both our information. My email is fhaccord@aol.com
    Regards

    Many thanks for the information – had a quick chat to a yacht club member yesterday who may have more info on the origins (he bought it from the fisherman for the scrap value which they agreed at £300 at the time) Will post more details after I have seen him later.

    Hi Frank

    Many thanks for your post – I have looked at the Admiralty Manual and agree that is what it seems to be.

    Any thoughts on a date for it – I see it says “still in use”, so could it be a later addition as part of the ballast.

    Would it have been used on the anchor chain?

    Regards
