Managed to get in to the River side where these tugs were last reported and they are still there. No work seems to have taken place on them and not sure what the plans are.

LORD WAVERLEY and LORD DEVONPORT were apparently later abandoned by owner.

Now reported sold by the Sandwich Port & Haven Commissioners to Terry Murphy/Charlight Towing Ltd, owner and operator of the delightful little CHARLIGHT, built by T van Duijvendijk, Lekkerkerk in 1936:

Good photos,  the owner apparently saved them from scrap or being sold last minute literally in the last week and i heard they were told to be removed from Sandwich to a new location.   Any idea why they are at Ramsgate, are they still there and being slipped?

Just the one, so far, it seems. The LW looks awful and I am not expecting the sister to be any different.  It does seem a very odd purchase.

I went to look at these two last month David.  Went onboard both as they were due to be sold off very cheaply. I took photos throughout the boats, its more cosmetic and just a mess of how they were badly moored against a concrete wall and knocked about and unloved for 6 years.  They were both locked up and fully working, but do need quite a bit of work thats for sure.   Lord Waverley is actually the one in better nick!  The portside rubbing band of lord devonport is totally hanging off where she has been hitting the wall for years with no fendering, also her wheel is missing after vandals tried to strip her, but other than the wheel she is complete and starts and runs.

The current owner i was told lived abroad and has since paid mooring fees and still owns them and has decided to move them to a new mooring somewhere on the River Medway

Speedwell is towing them today looking at Ais as it says Destination Medway

Im not hopeful that anything will change when they reach there, as they haven't been touched by the owner for 6 years just left laid up and rotting sadly

Hi all,

Does anyone please know if the Lord Waverley made it to the medway, if so does anyone know or can obtain a location for me please?
Desperate to find her as my dad used to work on her years ago, so its a bit of a personal quest.

I hope you can help.

Regards

Dan

Yes, Dan, the pair were towed to the Medway and are moored on a barge just downstream from the Medway Bridge, on the north side.
Unless they have recently moved, the view from the river wall near MacDonalds: http://tinyurl.com/gl3l85h

Lord Waverley and Lord Devonport are moored opposite McDonalds on the River Medway near the Medway motorway bridge outside Rochester.
