HMS Iveston makes a splash

HMS Iveston set sail on its final ever journey earlier this week as it made its way to EMR Erith. The ton class minesweeper was delivered to Secure Measures Marine who use a floating dry dock and platform off the EMR Quay.

The hull of the decommissioned minesweeper is made of wood, given that sea mines are generally magnetic, steel would be quite literally the enemy for anyone working on such a vessel. The rest of the structure is made of non-ferrous metals.
