SALMAID was one of three vessels built for the Admiralty by Hall Russells. The other two were SALMASTER and SALMOOR. They were equipped with a heavy lift jib on the fore deck in front of the wheelhouse. An "A" type box fitted on top of the wheelhouse at the apex of the A-frame. A box section was fitted at the top A-frame with a heavy duty swivel sheave where the jibs wires ran through. Where the crane did all the lifting heavy oak timber was fitted to protect the hull. The timber had to be shaped to the contours of the bow. They were fitted from the deck to the waterline at an angle. The ship was sold in 2012 and renamed KOMMANDER CALUM. Two horns were fixed on the bow for lifting buoys for inspection. No further informaiton of new owners.
