She does look superb, much better than when Dad and I were driving her around Newhaven when she was standing in as relief tug in the late 60's/early 70's. I have to say that I think I preferred Kite over Kent, though.

The last time the Kent was used for commercial work was in 1986 and that was for the London side of the company J P Knight (LONDON) Ltd, then they bought the ex Girl classn tug Agnes from Portland ,and the Kent became surplus Again, and I took her to the moorings in Rochester after which she was laid up and eventually --Thankfully became the baby of the South eastern Tug society,  There use to be a set of drawings for her in the Rochester office bur they were as built with the tall lowering funnel,and mast,    full deck casing ,  and a lifeboat, it may be that they still exist in the archives of J P knight somewhere I built a model of her 30 years ago and it is still going strong even now.
