Sorry it's such a poor photo. However, I have yet to come accross another photo of her anywhere. She was very common on the Thames for a brief period in 1980, transporting fuel oil intra-Thames to Tilbury and West Thurrock Power Stations. She was owned by a company called Carless Solvents but I seem to recall that they ceased trading not long after the Carsol was put into service. Consequently, she was laid up in the Royal Docks.
Thanks to Jonesy for reminding me that the owner was Carless Solvents not Carless Petroleum
