Lady Woodward is a near sister ship to both Lady Cutler and Lady McKell.

She was withdrawn from service in 1992 and sold to Tasmanian interests. Her new owners removed one bridge and she now services salmon farms on the west coast of Tasmania.

On the 3rd of February, 2001 the Lady Jane Franklin ran aground near Strahan. The followin day the lady Woodward pulled her clear and towed her to harbour.

Lady Woodward received a new coat of dark green paint and a general overhaul in 2005. She is said to be in good condition and well maintained.
