One of them was around until fairly recently. The Restoration, built as Lock Knot, was broken up only in 2000. See under IMO 8846371.

This was one of a class of small coastal cargo ships that were mass-produced during WW-II. They were commonly referred to as "knot ships" because they were originally named after knots and splices ("Short Spice", Square Knot", etc.).
The original name of this particular one was "Rolling Hitch".
