Tug Brocklebank (1964) build
« on: October 24, 2011, 04:01:23 PM »

Hi newbie here
Has anyone built this tug or has any detailed pictures or plans?
I used to live in liverpool, but now in East Sussex so am not able to get to the
Albert dock to take pictures of it.
Need birds eye view of deck if possible.

Note Wincham in the background has been scrapped in rather strange circumstances <*<

Ooh I just love strange circumstances - and I'm sitting comfortably. Spill the beans Funtimefrankie

Jonbuoy - I'm off to the Echo Arena on Saturday for Carnival du Vampires Rock http://vampiresrock.com/ (supposed to be a very good show) I'll try to pop over for those pics you mention.

Great pic's of a lovely old 60's tug, the type I worked on as a lad :-)).,,,, and kept in good order by the look of her. So what happened re Wincham ?

Word's fail me on the fate of the Wincham, what a ridicolous situation and after all that money being spent on her. Our whole maritime history is slowl;y being eroded by the these so called intelligent people all over the UK. They did a similar thing at Swansea Maritime Museum, took away all the old historic exhibit's and put in push button screen's that show or tell nothing. Let us hope they leave the Brocklebank well alone.

Can't say it was enjoyable but thanks for the info and links Funtimefrankie. I'm just lost for words on what has gone on.

Thanks Norseman.
She always seems to be tied up with her starboard side by the quay.
So you might need a long lensed camera for a close up of the port side.
Regards.
