Help please
« on: November 17, 2014, 10:37:50 PM »


These are the only existing images of an old steam tug (the Terawhiti) that used to operate in Wellington Harbour (NZ) in the 1920s. It's probably older than that and most likely made in Britain. Does it remind anyone of another tug.
I'd like to make a model of it but have no idea what the hull would look like so I'm hoping it is similar to some other UK tugs. Does anyone have any ideas/plans/drawings of a similar boat. It has 2 derricks behind the superstructure and looks like it was a reasonable size
Any help much appreciated.

Google the vessel, there is plenty of information about her and her loss.

Try this for starters: http://www.wrecksite.eu/wreck.aspx?57381

Yes there is. But that is from her time after she left Wellington. The Australian photos show her after an extensive refit.
Does anyone have any reference of hulls circa 1907?
