I learnt one many years ago called "The Good ship Lydis Anne", that was about a dredger on the Manchester ship canal.

Are you thinking of Adge Cutler's 'Captain of a Dredger'. (from before his days with The Wurzel's!)? Martin Babb sings it down our end! Chorus goes:

" The chains go bang.
The buckets clang.
There is no vessel finer,
From Bristol docks down to Mumbles rocks,
Proud as an ocean liner.
Oh let the farmer till his field,
And the clerk stick to his ledger,
With a Yo, Ho, Ho, from the crew down below
I'm the captain of a dredger."

Was that it?

Tom

You took the words out of my mouth Sue.
Wonder what a full-rigged dredger will look like!

Apparently, this is on the album "The Wurzels are Scrumptious!". Written by Adge Cutler, but I can't find a version recorded by him.

The Wurzels (as Adge's backing group) go back a long way.

You can hear the song at that site and it's the one the OP wants.

Note the small title difference.
