ADDI

Seen on the slip at Grimsby 30th June 05. Can anybody identify what she is and what type of craft she used to be?

Steve,

Dutch - possibly german - twin screw harbour tug. Her anchor gives her away - but she looks like a yacht conversion. If you post it at the forum on www.tugspotters.com you'll get her exact details!

Steve,
great picture, she was origionally a Gloucester & Sharpness canal / river severn tug built at Brimscombe, Gloucestershire on the Stroudwater canal by Abdela Mitchell in 1915, sold by BW about 1970 and converted to cruiser and renamed Tugaddie, some time in the last few years she has been renamed Addie again and her single Ruston has been replaced by twin screw.
