Great photo Robert. She did have an open wheelhouse originally.

It maybe be the Avenger in the background? Hard to tell

Nice one Bob, her and the Burma looked even older than their years. I may be wrong but I think they may even have had open wheelhouse originally!

Thanks Steve, the other tug looks like the HIBERNIA, I will have to check.

Hi Bob

Nice "historical" photograph - looks like a large tug in the background, no doubt another one that has gone to the breakers yard!
