One of eight similar vessels built by MacGregor's in 1912/1913 for the grandly-named Coasting Motor Shipping Co Ltd of Glasgow. These were the first internal combustion engined lighters to be built on the canal but they wern't a success and by the late 20s all had been sold on.

She is believed to have been sold to new owners in Sierra Leone in the 1920s.
