Leith Dock Commission

Surprisingly enough for having a shipyard on there doorstep the Leith Dock Commission only ever ordered one ship from the local yard, the ship was a harbour tug called the CRAIGLEITH.

It would seem that the Leith Dock Commission would buy there tugs and any other vessels required from any shipyard but the one right next to them.

So much for supporting local industry, but perhaps it was price thing or something else.

The Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb even built more tugs for the Clyde than they did for the Leith Dock Commission (later to become Forth Ports) Now thats not to say that they were anyway unhappy with the tug built for them as the CRAIGLEITH along with a couple of other harbour tugs were around Leith docks for many years, perhaps more of a way that the Leith Dock Commission worked at the time.
