A question for all tug enthusiasts.
Can anybody confirm when the tug Audrey was built please.
I understand she was built by P.K.Harris Appledore sometime between 1961 and 1982.
She was sold by the Royal Navy at which time she was a Girl Class Tug.
She was renamed Stint until bought by the Carmet Towage Company.
I have done a lot of research both on the internet and have also looked through numerous books and cannot find the answer.

Regards

Many thanks for your information.
I was watching her on the Mersey at Eastham a couple of days ago towing
a barge Vega into Eastham Locks.
