I'm pretty sure that there's a Mayhem thread about this tug already. This is the third time it's been listed in the last two or three weeks, the first time the seller made some excuse about correcting mistakes in the listing, probably the price wasn't reaching the level he was hoping for, the second time it sold and the buyer seems to have wriggled out of completing the purchase after seeing the thing in the flesh, apparently it was "Bigger than he expected", though the seller had listed all the dimensions, and we're now going through the whole process for the third time. I've already said in the earlier thread that I don't really think it's worth much over 200, though eBay prices never cease to amaze me.

Was the original Moorcock one of the three tugs wrecked on the Pembrokeshire coast?
