Originally a butty boat, it was cut in two by Tardebigge Boat Co in April 1964 and converted into two hire boats (being renamed BARRACUDA and SEEKER); both halves sold to Dartline at Bunbury in 1968, and then to a David Feltham at Kinver in 1978. 

HNBC records have no information on what happened to SEEKER after purchase by David Feltham other than being renamed SWORDFISH but BARRACUDA has since been renamed as THE FAL.

There was an article about THE FAL/BARRACUDA in Canal Boat magazine in November 2018.
