Photographer:Phil English [View profile]Title:NEG CHIEFTAINAdded:Aug 31, 2006
Photo Category: Tugs
Ramsgate, 1983. The Neg Chieftain on one of several voyages that year which involved towing a rock-laden barge from Scandinavia to Ramsgate, for the building of a new breakwater. I can't find anything at the moment regarding the tug's history but I do know that the barge (part of which can be seen to the right) was the cut-down hull of the former Danish ferry Storebaelt, built in 1939.

Later that year both tug and barge foundered off Ramsgate. More details can be found here if you can read Norwegian.
