Pollock completed and launched her as a merchant vessel, the "Nervo", for the London & Rochester Trading Co Ltd.. As can be seen from the photograph below, her superstructure has been designed with a much lower barge-like profile than that of the 80.5 foot "Improved VICs" which were completed for the MOWT. With her TVO engine instead of the standard steam plant as well as other modifications, her deadweight tonnage increased from 165 to 250.
Some very interesting background to "Nervo" and her sister "Knox" (VIC59) have been provided by "Knox's" former skipper, Alan Jenner, and included in the entry for "Knox".
The photograph below shows "Nervo" on the Sea Reach of the River Thames in 1962.
In July 1969 she was bought by H R Horlock & Co of Esses for use as a ballast lighter. Nothing is known about her after this. .
