I was working in No 2 basin when it was announced that a company had acquired the No 3 basin,
as a terminus for it`s `Roll on, Roll off, ships `. I watched as the company had contractors, dig for
ages, to replace a wall, with a concrete slope. I was engaged to help build a new 5 ton crane, on
the ex store boat site, the first of the few. I did not know that No 2 basin, belong to them, as well.
