Cowes - Medina Moorings.jpg - SOLD - Looking south up the River Medina. The old hammerhead crane of the old J Samuel White is prominent on the west bank. There has been a shipyard on the site since the 1700,s. Records indicate that by the 1850s White's docks with its steam sawmills and engine shops, and the mast and block shops, provided work for around 500 craftsmen. J Samuel White expanded still further in 1899. It rapidly became a world leader in the design and construction of small- to medium-sized naval and merchant ships, and also built numerous smaller craft, including more RNLI lifeboats than any other shipbuilder.
