Southampton Eastern Docks - tug/tender Calshot under way
Southampton Eastern Docks - tug/tender Calshot under way
The former steam powered tug/tender Calshot now has diesel engines, although the boiler has been retained as ballast. However, appearances can be deceptive and if you look carefully the lines to tugs fore and aft are discernible. Calshot led off the flotilla of vessels to commemorate the centenary of SS Titanic's first and only Southampton departure. She only moved a short distance before returning to the dock wall. SS Shieldhall, on the other hand, moved under her own steam for a four hour cruise.

The Royal Navy blotted its copy book as HMS Blazer got a rope round her propeller and was last seen lashed alongside the Harbourmaster's boat.
