    Re: World's TUGBOATS

    I have no idea what has gone wrong here. I understand there is an issue with the DWT, which has held up delivery. I don't know if it is a designer problem or a builder problem.
    This again has given LD Lines a reason to cancel the contract, which came in handy for them due to excess of ferries.

    I'm pretty sure I have posted pictures of this ferry earlier, but can't recall when and where.

      That optimistic article in anyferry.co.uk was end of 2010!!

      Another view here:

      LD Lines do still operate here - joint venture with DFDS on Dover - Calais, plus Portsmouth - Le Havre, Newhaven - Dieppe and they have one half way down France from Gijon to St Nazaire.

      We do also get a new line - owned by Eurotunnel - eventually - having bought up the old Seafrance ships (which aren't very old or very French).

      None of this has ANYTHING to do with Tugboats!! Thanks Ombugge.
      Cheers,

      Mark.

                      A world away from Eskild's working boats, and back a few years. These are from the 'M-Shed', the museum of life in Bristol. The boats are in the 'Floating Dock' i.e. behind the lock, protected from the enormous tidal range of the Severn Estuary and British Channel.

                      Firstly the Mayflower of 1861.





                      And then bang up to date - well, 1935, with 'John King' - running around the dock with paying guests at the weekend. She worked all her life on the Avon until 1976 - with such high profile jobs as towing the SS Great Britain to her current dry dock, and is now in gracious retirement at the museum.







                      Cheers,

                      Mark.
