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

Sold to the London & Paris Marine Express Company of Hull in 1918. In use as a barge at Falmouth until the mid-30s when sold on to Liverpool based interests for the same purpose. Nothing further known.
