Three photos of the Crowley Maritime tug 'Hunter", taken near Seattle, and sent to me by a friend!
This tug wins the Seattle Maritime Festival's Tug Races every year, as she is capable of 17 knots :)

Great photos Jim,
I wish you had entered them in the mystery tug comp - I might have stood a chance of getting it, I haven't had a clue about any so far!
They were all Mersey based vessels, the three tenders belonged to Cunard, White Star and CPR respectively and the tug Sarah Jolliffe was  built 1895 and passed to Alexandra Towing Co in 1908 with the takeover. After notable service worldwide in WW1 she served with Alex until 1924 when she was broken up at Garston. The paddle tug belonged to the Bridgewater dept of MSC and With her sister Dagmar towed barges from Runcorn to the Mersey dock system.

Reply to Willowgarth:
Hi Fred,Thanks for the info. I was wondering if you knew anything about the tugs in REAL TUG PICs sub-title `Sad Picture`?
I have put my idea there but have had no verification or denial.

Keep up the good work,

Jim

: willowgarth April 14, 2009, 15:43:34
Hi Jim,

I think you're spot on with your post, all I can add is their former names - Weathercock, Peacock, and Flyingcock. They were built as you say in 1959/60

Cheers Fred

Hi Gang,

A few more `Old-Timers` for you. I believe the one with the name `Wapita` on the pic was actually the CPR tug `Wapiti` 1919--1945.
I think the pic of the `Wapping`1894, is a great one of a tug with 2 masts though she must have been awfull to bunker having to drop the stern one every time as well as swinging the boats out.Last thing you wanted was a couple of lifeboats full of `Nutty Slack`.
The `Wellington` being a mere youngster born in 1926.

As I remember a moulded hull was available from The Netherlands or Germany.  I like her as built with the aft mast.  Great tug, great model, any idea of her scale ?

 
: Re: Gallery - Image Resource - Pictures only !
: tugs53 January 06, 2012, 08:57:47
1/62 scale I think.

  I posted a link to a firm that sells the hull.  Have to look around the forum for it though, as I can't remember where I put it ;D

Another one here.

Look at the size of these monster salvage tugs!!!!!!!!! number 1 has a heli pad on it. the third, Nickolay Chicker, is a endangered russian salvage tug whose habitat is rapidly diminishing. no, actually she is the sister ship of the Fotiy Krylov, both salvage tugs are owned by Tsavliris.

Both now gone to??
We had a Saint in New Zealand called "Toia" 1921 -54. Based in Wellington, she was ready for the big maritime disaster that never came. Had she been available in '68 when the "Wahine" got scuppered, she would have towed her out of trouble with no bother. Her successors were Empires, one only of which was available, and she didn't have the power. A local resident at the time that I knew well said that a few survivors got wound up in her prop in fact, which is a little known tragic fact.
"Toia" was scrapped in '55.
