A. & J. Inglis

A & J Inglis, was a shipbuilding firm founded by Anthony Inglis and his brother John and shipbuilders in Glasgow, Scotland in 1862. The firm built over 500 ships in a period of just over 100 years, their Pointhouse Shipyard was at the confluence of the rivers Kelvin. They constructed a wide range of ships, including Clyde steamers, paddle steamers and small ocean liners. In wartime, they built small warships, in the period after World War II, they built a number of whalers. A & J Inglis of Glasgow, was formed in 1848. Thomas B. Seath founded the shipyard at Pointhouse in 1845 and it was acquired by A & J Inglis in 1862. In 1884 Anthony Inglis died and his son John Inglis took over. John Inglis himself, was well known for many maritime activities. In 1885 they launched 11 ships with a total tonnage of 7,470 tons. In 1867, a Patent Slip Dock for ship repairs was built at Pointhouse; this was an innovative alternative to a dry dock, invented by Robert Napier. The vessel sat on a big trolley, on rails, was hauled up onto dry land by a powerful winch.

The yard had up to 2,000 employees on just 18 acres of ground plus 300 workers at the former premises of the company in Whitehall Foundry. In 1897, the Transatlantic Company of Paris ordered two of a total of ten fast mail steamers for their African service at A & J Inglis. Inglis delivered two weeks ahead of their competitors; the French owners were impressed and checked that the fast-track build programme had not resulted in an inferior quality, but found no evidence of this, on the contrary they were delighted with the high standard of construction achieved. Harland and Wolff bought controlling shares in the company in 1919 but the yard remained independent. After Harland and Wolff, who owned a larger yard on the opposite bank of the river at Govan, opted to consolidate its operations in Belfast, the yard closed in 1962 and is now the site of the new Riverside Museum; some of the first ships built by the shipyard were propelled by a combination of sails and steam engines. Because of their elegant design and high speed they were recognised as leading-edge representatives of their class.

The shipyard became famous by building the British Royal Yacht Alexandra and the Egyptian Royal Yacht SS Safra El-Bahr. The turbine yacht TS Vanadis was built of steel, rigged as a triple screw schooner and, was powered by steam turbines. Famous ships built by the firm include the paddle steamer Waverley, now the world's last seagoing paddle steamer. Other Inglis-built paddle steamers include the Maid of the Loch, which still serves as a visitor attraction on Loch Lomond, the forerunner to the Humber Bridge, PS Lincoln Castle, controversially broken up in situ at Grimsby's Alexandra Dock, despite her uniqueness of design as what was to have been Inglis's only cargo carrying estuary paddle steamer. In ocean-going service, paddle steamers became much less useful after the invention of the screw propeller, but they remained in use in coastal service and as river tugboats, thanks to their shallow draught and good manoeuvrability; the shipyard was specialised in conversions: On 16 May 1901 the TS King Edward was launched, built by William Denny and Brothers in Dumbarton.

The builders hoped to attain a speed of 20 knots with the turbine machinery. However, on 24 June 1901 in seven return runs over the mile, the best mean speed attained was 19.7 knots. On the next day at the Pointhouse yard of A. & J. Inglis the central propeller of 4 feet diameter was exchanged for one of 4 feet 9 inches diameter, the outer propellers of 2 feet 10 inches diameter were exchanged for propellers 3 feet 4 inches diameter. Trials on 26 June 1901 achieved a mean of 20.48 knots. In 1905, an extension and rebuild of the SS Mahroussa was undertaken; the ship had been built for Isma'il Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and was renamed to SS El Horria. The two paddle wheels were replaced by triple screws powered by steam turbines built by Inglis at their Warroch Street Engine Works in Glasgow. Inglis were one of the first companies licensed by the Parsons Marine Steam Turbine Company Wallsend for the manufacture of steam turbines in their own works; the ship was still in use in 2001 as a luxury yacht.

Inglis built eight ferries between 1929 for the Entre Rios Railways Co. in Argentina. These were used between 1907 and 1990 to cross the Paraná River and join the Buenos Aires province and the Entre Rios province, until new bridges were built over the rivers they crossed: Lucía Carbó María Parera Mercedes Lacroze Roque Saenz Peña Exequiel Ramos Mejía Dolores de Urquiza Delfina Mitre Carmen Avellaneda Pictures of the Argentine train ferries at the Histarmar website; the MV Lady Rose was christened Lady Sylvia when launched in 1937 for the use on Barkley Sound. She was designed for the sheltered coastal waters of British Columbia. However, this was the first diesel powered vessel to cross the Atlantic driven by a single propeller. Lady Rose was acquired by the Clayton family of Sechelt in September 2019 and she was relocated to the MacKenzie Marina in Sechelt soon thereafter. Restoration plans are still being formulated. MV Aqueity and MV Anonity were 890 GRT coastal tankers built in 1945 for the Ministry of War Transport.

The North Carr Lightship was launched in 1932 and created quite a stir in Edinburgh on account of her fog horn being tested while lying ¾ mile off Granton, Edinburgh in the Firth of Forth. As the fog horn had a range of approximatel
