I would be interested in the pictures of Beamish for it is virtually the tug I am building by all accounts.

Hello Toby the Beamish was a Birch class Empire tug. Empire Paul she was a different build to the Foremost class empires Margaret,Leonard and Raymond, the birch class was slightly longer but narrower and had more sheer ( rise of deck at the front) than the Foremost class.

Thank you for the update. My hull does not have much shear. I am going to scan a line drawing later and post it. I was just looking at the bridge and the differing heights of the superstructure  when I made my comment about Beamish. Is there a definitive set of drawings showing the differences between the various Empires and other tugs say from a even just a side view.

Hi Toby, I'm not in the photo. I was about four years old when Grandpa died, sadly I have no memories of him and never got to see his tugboat.
