she has been sold to a Norwegian shipowner and, hopefully, in good hands. She is to spend the summers in Norwegian waters and winter in Gydnia, Poland .

If you go to the next Steam Tug down, it is an old South Shields built vessel now in Italian hands with a lovely shot of a little Triple Expansion complete with oily rag and attached condenser.

Hi all, I was invited onboard this vessel when she was lying alongside North Shields fish quay in the late 90's when Thordon bushings were peddling their synthetic bearing bushings. I think everyone who visited her were given a Rudokop mug which I still have. I wondered were this steam tug ended up.
