Wyre Marine Services dredger ABIGAIL H (ex Humber Workboats was delivered to Ramsey Shipyard on August 07, 2009. Tug ALBICORE had delivered her from Fleetwood where she had been lying following her salvage following her sinking in Heysham Harbour on November 02, 2008. Her arrival at Ramset was assisted by Laxey Towing Company's tug WENDY ANN. There had been suggestions that ABIGAIL H was to be rebuilt but it now appears that the 51 year old hopper dredger will end her days at Ramsey Shipyard where she is to be broken up.

Two sets of photographs depict her arrival at Ramsey assisted by Laxey Towing Company's tug WENDY ANN. Those above were taken by Jenny Williamson whilst those below by John Williamson
