Sturrock, Hugo and Bates were 27 tons, More was 29.5 tons. Strongest among the SA steam tugs built before 1940 and whose info is known to me was Sir William Hoy at 32 tons. I have not seen any listed at less than 27 tons, but there were a number of tugs built before the mid twenties whose BP was not stated.
