Hi,

I am trying to find out what happened to the ex Dover Harbour Board tug Dominant. I believe at one time she was laid up on the River Medina? Is she still there and has anyone got a picture?

Much obliged
Nigel Thornton

I have managed to find a couple of old photos of the Dominant and Diligent they are not very good but better than nothing. The Delphinius was a 2 deck tender going out to small cruise ships anchoring in the harbour .
