Karachi Port Authority Steam tug "Franklyn"

21st February 2006, 20:15
I have been given a basic model of the Karachi twin screw steam tug "Franklyn" to restore. She appears to date from the late twenties and was still in service post war.

I wonder if anybody can remember her and has a photographs of her or could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful.

The model was built by/for an ex B&I master who later became Port Superintendant at Karachi in the mid-thirtes.

With kind regards,

Jon Godsell

Hi Scousegit,

Welcome to SN.

I tried Google and the SN Gallery for you without success.

Hopefully one of the other members will be able to help.
