The Father Thames caught fire during the early 1980s and totally burnt out. Woods River Services planned to buy the Hull and turn the vessel into a floating restaurent but this never happend.
All that remains of her is the hull in the middle of the two boats : The Edith and a dutch barge LI HOOP.

Operated by:
Matthews & Son LTD (1973-83)
Woods River Cruises (1984-97)
TLC (1997-??)
Alan James (Downtown Marine) (????-????)
Thames Drydocking (????- Current)

Any extra info would be great ! :-D

That's a very interesting photo Karbine. However, I'm more interested in the vessel behind. You say she is named Edith? Do you have any history or other info on her?
