Maryport Maritime Museum
Maryport Maritime Museum
The tug on the left is Chipchase with a pair of Plenty inverted vertical triple expansion engines. She has been broken up and one engine is on display at Clydebuilt, Braehead.
In the middle is VIC96. She has been saved and is being restored at Chatham. Good news.
On the right is the 1951 built Harecraig II (aka Flying Buzzard). She has been converted to a diesel tug and is due (has gone?) to go overseas. Her Fleming and Ferguson compound engine is at the Scottish Maritime Museum site in Irvine.
There are no steam ships at Maryport anymore.
The fourth vessel we saw this day was the SY Schaarhorn - now preserved in steam at Hamburg.
