Tug takes a trip to Limehouse
The MT Kent moored up at the Limehouse Marina at the weekend. Built in 1948, she was at the time the most powerful single screw harbour tug in the UK and spent much of her time on the Medway. She was taken out of service in the mid-1980s. In 1995 the South Eastern Tug Society, a group of volunteers including former tugmen, watermen and maritime enthusiasts, bought her for £1.
