I like the picture of that Durban harbour tug. I think the Bluff is in the background, but it is a long since I was last in Durban, so i might be wrong. I am interested inthe F.C.Sturrock that is a floating exhibit at the Maritime Museum in Durban. If anyone would like to contact me, I will tell them all about it.

This is one of two tugs built by Dorbyl Marine in Durban, I was contracts supervisor in charge of fitting out for a company known as saxon ceilings, I think one of them was named the Piet Aucamp. I think it was 1984 and the owner was the s a railways.

Yes the Danie Duplessis was built in Durban too, I was the first deckhand to work on her. I also worked on the FC Sturruck, JR More, Wildebeest, Bates and the Campbell. From 1965 to 1974.
