No further information found on shipbuilder or build-place of the Ocean. The Ocean was a motor launch vessel, wrecked in 1847. There is no record of a vessel under the name of Ocean which fits with this description at [accessed 2 December 2014] which may indicate that the vessel was not Clyde-built.

Information from Sally Evans (Cotswold Archaeology), 27/11/2014.
