Hi Ben!
It's sad, even if the "Golden Cross" looks rather rundown. Close to my hometown they recently scrapped an old tug of nearly the same age and size. Only difference is that "Ems Tug" was classed, well maintained and fresh painted.

Sad end Ben to a once fine tug.

My Dad bless him was her skipper for a while when she was the Newport Screw Towing Company's 'Dunheron' when she worked out of Newport Dock South Wales.

One of her luxuries even then was she had central heating and my Dad loved working her from the top bridge and always was a powerfull and heavy tug for her days.
