Cultra/Carrickfergus built by P K Harris (i think!)
« on: May 04, 2008, 06:46:41 PM »

Im looking to try and obtain plans of one of these tugs as they are the harbour tugs operated in my local harbour aberdeen.  Does anyone know where to get the plans from?  I believe P K Harris became Appledore Shipbuilders but im not sure?  If anyone has any info atall on this it would be a great help!

Thanks

after further deeper investigation into this i have found there are quite a few tugs which are similar.  They originally operated in the tyne i think.  The most similar i have found is the "Yarm Cross" which is on this page http://www.ship-photographs.com/page26.htm near the bottom.  Anyone seen a model of this or similar?

Mention of the name of P K Harris, and I guess you're talking about the Carrickfergus from the early 1960s? She was a near sister to my father's tug Meeching, from 1960.

You won't get any P K Harris plans, trust me! I, and another Mayhemer, have gone through the long procedure of trying to track them down. One thread on the subject is here: http://modeltugforum.com/index.php?topic=475.0 with plenty of details, and I think there are some over at www.shipsnostalgia.com.

...Hi Guys...

Are these not the same as the "NORTON CROSS"...

If so then why not contact Brian Ward at Mobile Marine Models as they do the Hull & Plans for this tug...
