If you want to see what an imaginative naval architect can do with a Dog Class tug search MASTIFF on
and look at all the photos. The wheel house looks amazing.

She's a luxury "yacht" these days flying the Italian flag.

She looks a lot different to those heady day in the RMAS. Can't work out why they retained the Fire / Salvage pump at the aft end of the engine room, apart from historic interest.
