Portgarth was originally one of the two hydroconic hulled sisters, Clonmel and Cashel, built by Mitchison at Gateshead. Cashel, in fact. Became Portgarth and then sold to Greek owners and renamed Vernicos Martha and then Agios Nikolaos. Survived until February 2017, almost made it to 60!

Those hydroconic tugs from that era were clearly built to last!
