According to my records and alittle searching she was simply built for use as a Harbour Tug, as she is quite a large harbour tug, possibly she was designed for handling larger vessels in port ?

I am sure another member might be able to enlighten on this further ?

Not a photo taken by me, but I bought it over 10 years ago, on the back of the photo the date is 22-09-1995. The SEASPAN SCOUT, unfortunately I don't have any info for this tug so would it be possible for a member to provide me with the following ;

Year of build,
GRT,
Length,
Horse Power.

Thanks in advance, Dan.

ps, I will have to check Mike  ;)
