Hmmmm...this is a tease - unless one of us has been on board it's gonna be a hard nut to crack.
So what have we got - a preserved vessel, probably Dutch, maybe in a museum .....
Judging by the woodwork I would guess built early 20th Century (Paedrig thinks quite a lot later though). Judging by the shape and size of bridge I think something pretty small - you said not a ferry so maybe a tug, or pilot launch? I guess not a fishing vessel as I have not seen any reference to these on SN. I would guess steam rather than oil. Any of that lot near the mark Billyboy?
Come on - givvus a clue! Does she have paddles or screws, and is she in Europe or your end of the world?
The telegraph says she is twin screw. wheelhouse shape is a clue too! she is in europe. I have never seen her but heard about her. when i saw this picture i just had to try you guys out on guessing. reckon one of you know alredy and are keeping quiet for a bit.
ok, it is a tug. but which one? there were 4 tugs built with this name.1 scrapped, 1 seems to have dissapeared, one working and this one.
the picture is a wee bit missleading i think but thats the idea isnt it? LOL
this one started in life with 2 steam recip, has been re-engined with Diesels 3 times since then. she had quite an interesting lifetoo!
anyone guess yet? final clue tomorow.
