I remember this one Derek. Often used to see her tied up at the Berk chemical wharf at West Ham as I passed on the train.

Just found this on "Ships nostalgia"

Repertor 2 Ex Stormvogel, Luxemotor class.converted from dry cargo to tanker by P Horlock Mistley essex to carry Sulphuric acid from Berk Spencer Chemical works at Stratford E London,to Borax works Belvedere and Sheppy Glue at Queenbro Kent. I owned this barge from 1977 till the closure of Berks works in 1983.I sold her to a gentleman at Totness who started to convert her to a cruising home,looks like when the pic was taken. he later was divorced because to much time on the barge and sold her for the settlement.Repertor 2 ended up in Bristol with another divorcee and was in a very poor condition the last I saw her and was up for sale in lieu of harbour dues.The name Repertor 2 was she replaced the original Repertor Sailing/Motor barge that was fitted as a tank barge by P Horlock of Mistley.The Original Repertor in fully rigged and doing very well in sailing barge matches.
