Capetown Tugs

Two S.A. Railway tugs at Capetown. I believe the larger tug is the Danie Hugo ('59 812tg) and the smaller the Pilot/Harbour vessel Cecil G White ('59 111tg)

Red face S African steam tugs

How we have thrown our maritime heritage away!

The tugs in the Cape Town pic are as identified. Danie Hugo was scrapped in Walvis Bay in the early '80's, CG White was converted to a trawler and eventually lost in the mid '90's. Sir William Hoy was the world's most powerful tug on delivery, and served until 1979 when she was withdrawn and laid up in Durban. The subject of intense campaigning for preservation, she was vandalised badly, and as a result, the Railways saw her fit only for scrap, and she was broken up in Durban Aug-Nov 1982!!!.

J R More is still preserved in Dbn, with the pilot tug Ulundi (1927) on the dockside, as part of the Port Natal Maritime Museum.

Thanks Ken, My photos are now complete! These are some of the most recognisable vessels, along with the steam train engines seen into the eighties, working the ports of South Africa. The only other steam engine I remember in my nautical days was the crane at Avonmouth Drydock - no comparison!

sadly the maritime museum which houses the jr more - ulundi and the sas durban - is in a sorry state - with the later leaning on the jr more and having a pump to pump water out of her hull - the actual building with the models etc - is still in good shape - visited there in feb 2019 - the ulundi closed off to public - jr more is not been maintained
