‘Yorkshire Dry Dock’ Co Ltd Lime St Hull side launches the Hoo Dolphin for Lapthorne Shipping on a summer evening 1986. This was a regular event on the River Hull up until the early 1990’s, and there was always great potential to get your feet wet! Its interesting to note that further up the river past North Bridge their is a lot of commercial shipping working on the river, in 2009 shipping of any description is a rare sight.
