|The historic 86 year old steam tug "Forceful" docked on the 2500 tonne slipway at BSE Maritime Solutions in Brisbane for hull inspection survey work and reapplication of a protective antifouling system.
Built in Glasgow and first launched in 1925, the Forceful has served a long and distinguished career, and was eventually retired from service in 1970.
In 1971 she was handed over to the Queensland Maritime Museum Association, where she continues to be maintained by the dedicated members of the Association as a floating exhibit at her wharf.
