New tow at Balne Moor
« on: March 31, 2015, 05:29:20 PM »

Some months ago New Brighton MBC disbanded and their tow, "Elizabeth Waldie", was acquired by Balne Moor MBC.

The ship was in need of repair so one of our members, Roy Whitton, undertook a major overhaul.  The ship is now ready for work and will be brought back into service on Sunday 12 April.

Why not come along and be one of the first to tow this beautiful refurbished ship.

It's about ten feet long Brian, and is dwarfed only by the "San George" which also lives at Balne Moor.

Look forward to meeting you Adam.  I'll be the one with the "Ormesby Cross".

Thanks Michael, I'll be looking forward to that. The Ormesby and Ayton cross are my favourite tugs.


 I'll have one with me of course.


Oh and on the above subject...my Type 45 is 16ft, so she'd dwarf that tow too. Not as good looking as the San George though.  :D

  Hi Martin.
  Some one must have nicked the wheelhouse before it came to Balne Moor plus some other bits, but it's up & running now, will be
  towing her on Sunday,  look out for the photos.  Did it have a paint job while it was at Newbrighton?

  Cheers

That looks like it was a great day out, interesting looking course as well. Out of interest, the Salvador Dali - looks like a damens type design, was it scratch built or kit form. It is certainly a credit to the builder and very unusual too.
