Steam pilot tug South Africa

1958 built steam, pilot tug Alwyn Vintcent in danger of being scrapped.

All deals have fallen through and she will be scrapped if no one steps in to save her in the next few weeks.

Last steamed 1994 and laid up since 2000.

Last remaining steam tug capable of being restored to working order.

Saved from What Gordon???

You should have left her to the genuine enthusiasts in Cape town instead of stringing people along with tall tall stories.

Stories so tall they would rival the top of Falls of Clydes masts.
