Anyone who has been to Hong Kong will know how numerous tugs are in the area such as the H K UNITED 11 & XIAN HANG 286 seen attached. Apart from their names, I am unable to find any further information about these and most other tugs seen. Does anyone know any books or websites that may list tug from that area?
http://www.mardep.gov.hk/en/pub_services/pdf/shipreg_a_z.pdf shows the Hong Kong shipping register but only lists tugs belonging to the bigger towage companies.

Hi Bob,
I have a little contribution for your quest, although the two tugs illustrated are from the colonial days - circa 1960. I Hope they are of interest. Please have a look at my photo gallery.
regards,
John
