Do you have any more photos of British pusher tugs Dan? I'd love to see them if you have!
Regards
Eddy

Hi Eddy, i have just found this photo in my collection of the British Tug KESSOCK with a pusher bow and having modifications done to the upper mast, guess this is classed as a British Pusher Tug at the time the photo was taken as she was owned by J P Knights (UK).

Built 1975, GRT 233, LOA 28.35m, Sp 10k.

Regards, Dan.

Hi,
   it looks like one of the vac-u-boat in the USA products about 21.5 inches length, would make a great change from a Thames tug.
