Garnock tug
« on: September 18, 2011, 09:23:30 AM »

Hi all,
I have just purchased one Caldercraft Garnock kit that i would like to build. I am planning to add more details on it so i ask you gent's if you can help with some pictures of tugs sisterships with Garnock or at least built in the same period also with kort-nozzle.
Thank you
George

Hi George,

I think that there was only one ship of that class and that was the Garnock.....how ever she is a museum piece up at the port of Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland, and administered by the Scottish Maritime Museum....... see here..  

http://www.scottishmaritimemuseum.org/

and on their header/home page you will see Garnock tied up and slowly decaying away.......if you contact them I'm sure they will be able to send you some details/photos of what you want.........but she was a very sparcely fitted boat indeed.

...Hi Guys...

I was Engineer on "GARNOCK" when she had her unfortunate accident...

She was very sparsely equipped as Neil says...The Caldercraft Kit is as she was when built and not as she was at the end of her working life...There are a few changes but not too many...
If i can help you in any way just let me know...
In this picture I have a bit more hair than now...

...Best Regards...Norry...

...Hinhp651...

This picture was taken as we edged slowly sternwards down the River Irvine to allow the Caldercraft people to get some pictures of GARNOCK away from the peir...

Doesn,t the wee figure in the kit of the crewman leaning on the bulwark look familiar...

...Best Regards...Norry...
