Nice little tug. She was working out of Newhaven for a few months servicing a jack-up platform that was working on a sewage outfall pipe off Peacehaven. The crew got to know the crew of Newhaven's tug Meeching and they gave me and a friend a day on Applesider to see what she was up to. That would have been between 1970 and 73, I think.
