the cat - rusting old barge near Speirs Wharf

whilst in the north of the city, I stumbled upon this old barge, the side is spray painted with the name 'the cat', I have no idea if that's relevant, but its as good as name as any.
Just wondering if anyone knows anything about it....

Really dodgy place to be after 5pm. Big time dogging site next to the "Cat" on that side street there.

Don't think "The Cat" is the boats name. In a video I quickly made.

..somebody has wrote "Mental Mick" at the front of it.

I've also noticed the barge in the island in the middle of the canal is gone.

Because some ned joker has painted various slogans on the ground. So it must be going on there.
