First a series of pics of South African steam tug "Sir William Hoy" photographed in action in Durban, - 1978.
This tug operated since 1928, and was finally taken out of service in 1979, - just one year after I took these pictures.
Finally she was scrapped in Durban in 1982. ( What a pity! Should have been preserved as a maritime museum!)
Built in England by Armstrong Whitworth and Co. in Newcastle on Tyne.
786 GRT, - 294 Net, - Dimensions in feet:  171 x 36,5 x 17.
