In 1983 the former SAR&H Steam Tug AM Campbell was sold via public auction.

Anyone know what happened to her?

The tug was scrapped in Walvis Bay and cut up on the syncrolift. The wooden bridge structure was placed at the Yacht club for use by the sea scouts.
I was the last to sail as master on her.

So to the Danie Hugo. Her accommodation structure is standing in Swakopmund and is serving as a pub attached to a stone restaurant.

Thanks. Do you have any photos of her prior to scrapping or of her bridge?

FC Sturrock, Danie Hugo and AM Campbell all scrapped?

Trying to track down photos of RA Leigh prior to her scrapping as well.

I have quite a few slides of the Leigh during her "Rust in peace" phase in Durban next to the JR More and other ones taken in during trips down to Durban. Give me a shout if you want any.
