Hello, I'm new to this forum and I have a great interest in Large South African Steam Tugs.

Greetings from a rather wintery West Coast. There are some photos in the gallery of some of those magnificant steam tugs. Enjoy everything the sitr has to offer. I spent 11 very happy years on the P.E. and Cape Town based steam tugs and only wish they had kept one as a memorial to a special era but unfortunately they were all scuttled or scrapped other than the two in Durban that are non-operational.

Can't agree with you more. I was shocked to hear that the TH Watermeyer was chopped up in 1982. Couldn't believe it. PS. thanks for the info.
