The reunion on board was well attended and included tony Edwards who resides in the south of France. tony has written a book, Paid to live the dream, which chronicles his career on the tugs at Gravesend from the age of 15 and goes on to how he came to live in France. A good read which will bring back many memories to all the tug hands on the river Thames. After a long wait the portside ladder to the wheelhouse was delivered and welded into place, a welcome addition for access to the boat deck. Essential repairs to the gangplank have been completed and new wheels and the addition of a new steel plate make it a lot safer. we also now have a new steel grill over the top of the forward hatch which allows daylight down below whilst providing added security from intruders.
