I'm sure I've seen this tug before but can anbody identify her. Seen just below Greenwich Ship Tiers on 22/09/2007. The engines were being run up but all the windows are boarded up.

Best wishes David

Hello David, that is the preserved tug Swifstone and has been around for a few years now. The windows are boarded to stop some people taking aim with stones and other missiles causing expensive damage.
