Dang Eddy, I can see how you can ID some of the tugs and tenders in this shot, but some are to far away, and thus to small for me to be able to throw out those names with such certainty.
Thanks so much for your help.
"Calshot" at this date identifiable by virtue of open railings amidships.
She underwent various transformations over the years and of course is of particular interest being the only vessel in the picture still afloat.
