The TURMOIL was sold on to Tsavliris Salvage and Towage of Piraeus Greece in 1969, being renamed NISOS DELOS. Not sure of her subsequent history, but most probably found her way to the breakers by now. Unable to help on the ESKGARTH - was she a sister ship of the Bustler Class? Tony W.

Earlier on this year I had a browse round for a refresher on the Flying Enterprise. It fascinated me as a kid and was a big part of convincing me that a life at sea was for me. I never said I was smart.

I do recall seeing something about the later history of the Turmoil then, so a root through Google's offerings for the Flying Enterprise may hold the answer you are looking for.

Good Luck
Dave
Thanks dave will do

then you sailed with a great seaman. are you from aberdeen by the way? got a few relatives up there. my late father was a trawlerman out of aberdeen on the old steam trawlers till the war broke out.

Two of the "Garth" tugs were bought by Togo Oil and Marine working out of Lome in Togo West Africa. Not sure what they were before they were bought.
Contact Capt Monty Jones at [email protected]******** he'll be able to tell you.

Turmoil

William,

The Turmoil was broken up in January 1986 in Perama, Greece under the name of MATSAS, a name she was given in 1971.

Re the ESKGARTH is that the 1976 built one, or is it a much old tug ?.

Chris.

Got a feeling it was the 1976 one.
he was chief on her till he retired. sailed with Corys for many years starting with steam tripple expansion engines.
Any members from the Milford haven area may know of him he was "Roy Llewellyn"
