The tug Brocklebank at Liverpool Maritime Museum.
She looks to be in great condition and its very fitting for her to be there.

Sure is in great condition. Any tie-up to Brocklebanks or is the name purely coincidence?

Yes Brocklebank is in very good condition. I walk past her three days a week on my way to work. She is well maintained and always looks smart and shipshape.

She gets about the Irish Sea in the summer months and is often seen in Wales and the Isle of Mann. She is always out on the Mersey for special occassions, River Festival etc.

Hi Ron, (Wave)

Still in the vein of earlier times, I was lucky to take part in the Mersey River Festival last year. I crewed the Historic Lifeboat, William and Kate Johnston.

In the below pic, I am the one nearest the camera standing alongside the cockpit. It was a great day. We are entering the Albert Dock.

An offer like that is almost too tempting to refuse...a RNLI Hovercraft and a fresh sausage roll to boot, think I had better make my plans to visit!!.

If you do see the Hovercraft guys, dont stand behind it, it will blow sand in your sausage rolls, that plays hell with the molars and the sausage rolls I can tell you. (Sad)

Well perhaps but its more of a mistake to stand in front of one, particularly if its moving at the time.

Oh Thanks Doug

I have been saving my pocket money to get on e.
Yes tug and dock named after Danny Brock.

Hi, I sailed on her when she was towing barges for Howards to and from Dinmor--Angelsey (before they had their own tugs built) with stone for the building of Seaforth Dock.I was A/B at the time.I thought these pictures might interest some of you.13241
