The large tug Waterloo was not on The Thames for long. Built by Richard Dunston of Hessle in 1977 she appeared larger than her 315 gr tons. I seem to recall she had a sister on The Mersey. She was sold to Iran after a few years service and one is tempted to think her proportions suited handling ULCC
