I would like to 'touch my forelock' here and pay tribute to the cook on each of the tugs I served on. South Africa then had the strange idea of the harbour tugs also being salvage tugs. We carried three days 'emergency' supplies and I remember particularly being sent out in foul weather for a tanker that had lost its propeller off Mossel Bay. It took us five days to get her but we always had something hot. He was definitely more important than i. I was only the driver!
