All the topsides on her were new at Hartlepool, but the hull is definitely the SANDTEX. If you message me with your email, I'll send a couple of photos so you can compare the two hulls.

Thanks davidships but not sure that she is the SANDTEX, she was a lighterage tug on the Thames with a much lower profile.
