Tug takes a trip to Lime­house

The Wharf - - Front Page -

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.
