Meechingman, I have just downloaded some interesting pics of the 'Meeching' that you had posted on another site and think it would be nice of you to feature them here, with due acknowledgement to 'Macjacks Collection' ofcourse.

Another one I came across is one of the 'Megalochari XII' ex 'Ironsider' and thought "doesn't she look well" in those colours.
The detail that came with it are as follows:
Built....1967....by Richard Dunston at Hessle....for 'Lawson Batey Tugs Ltd.'
1986 to 'Tyne Tugs Ltd.,' Newcastle.
1992 to 'Proodos Naftiki Eteria', mng Megalohari Hellenic Tugboats and renamed  'Megalochari XII'
2004......Still in service.

I have full permission to use photos from 3 collections, including Macjack's, so I'll do this after work, hopefully later today or tomorrow. Waiting to hear back on the restoration ones.

I was going through my old photo album and scanned a few pics of old diesel boats that I had taken many tears ago:

More from several"years" ago. A few of these are from people with whom I traded photos, however, the sources have been lost in antiquity. The ones that I remember are Maurice Sipple and Bob Martin.

Nice pic, Suds. The Constant was one of a few old tugs converted to yachts by a guy in Baltimore. He did a nice job.
