Senlac / Meeching Tug / Sandswift

By Laurie Stonehouse

The following photographs show a somewhat tranquil summers day, the vessels in view are now just a distant memory, but the ever popular Senlac is still operating in the mediterranean, while the Meeching Tug is slowly being restored by a private enthusiast.

Nice silhouette photos. I don't think this is Sand Swift, Laurie. Looks more like one of the visiting Westminster Dredging vessels at work in the entrance channel.

It was a bit of a guess Andy, I thought it may have been the Sand Swan it's almost impossible to tell. Well done for identifying the right vessel.

p.s. How do you know?
