I am doubtful about place of build as Grimsby as, so far as I know, no-one there building tugs at that time. But maybe bought through an owner there. No obvious candidate in my 1865/1866-built tugs. Any reference to whether wood or iron hull?

Sorry David, but as far as I know, there never was a wooden tug at the Westerschelde! Maybe you can ask Piet if you met him on Clydesite?

David and your 2nd #.
Does that imply building of tugs was so specialised, it was only undertaken by builders at certain locations.
That would make it difficult for any company to break in to new markets.
if someone is prepared to have a go, at an acceptable price, would they not take up the cudgel and try, at the least.
Bear in mind the Clyde builders were insignificant until iron and steel.

Not impossible that she was built at Grimsby, but even less likely if she was iron-hulled (indeed, I'm not sure whether there was anyone there building in iron at that time - J S Doig didn't started until 1904). Not many tugs being build in UK at that time were screw tugs. Anyway, no trace yet.

There certainly was a significant shipbuilding industry on the Clyde long before iron - particularly on the lower Clyde at Greenock, Port Glasgow and Dumbarton, though it did not match the prolific Tyne/Wear area. Indeed many of the famous shipbuilding names of 19th century Clyde began in the wood-hull era, later adopting new materials.

David,
I chequed out as far as possible. The only wooden tug even worked at the Westerschelde was a very short time in WW II. An LT tug lost in Hansweert and remainings can be seen as I have been told. Last time I saw them was in 1977.
So, my first thought seems to be right: no wooden tug in our companies! But this tug ever really exist! So if not build at your side, what's up now?
Same problem as it is hard to convince Dutch people that JOZINA was surely NOT EN AVANT without a number! But this one I have set my teeth in. I will show them they all are wrong! But I can't with CONCURRENT! That is up to others. You, I very much hope!
