From the look of this one, it's one of these three.
Hart (1958), Stranton or Helen M McAllister (1959)

Hi Justina

Thanks for the info. Seagarth never came up in my searches of Harris tugs!

There have been a few threads here re PK Harris and hydroconic hulls. Have a search around. If, in your research, you come across anything on the Meeching (1960), could you let me know please. She was my late father's last command and I'm slowly putting together her 'life story' for the local maritime museum here in Newhaven.

Come to think of it, maybe we could swap a bit of info on hydroconics, though I'm sure you'll have already found out more than I've had time to! (Too busy working and writing a doctoral standard thesis myself - not on hydroconics, but music!)

Now having access to the Harris yardlists, it would seem that I was right. They never built a tug called Seagarth, if the records are correct.

This should therefore be one of these four, Hart, Seaton, Stranton or Throston. Yard numbers 111,112,113 and 114. Indentical sisters.

There was Hazlegarth and Willowgarth but they were rather larger tugs, 230 tons vs 145.

Did you finish that thesis, Justina? I'd love to see it if it was published.

Andy

Picture i have of HART and STRANTON owned by Tees & Hartlepool Authority shows no white band around hull.
Other tugs of this design, built by P.K.Harris 1956/57 were M.S.C SOVEREIGN and three sisters of Manchester Ship Canal Co.
Cheers John.
