don't loolk like a PushyCat to me. Hull form does not tally judging from the pic and non were built with a superstructure like that. The hull form is much more in line with the oulder, 1950's, dredgetenders / launch tugs with a 'vlet' (completely round bilge) design

I delivered this mighty vessel from Langston to Portland when she was bought by Griffin Towage. I think that she changed hands then for about 10K.

She was a dog of a thing and very thin in places, especially under the shaft. She had an old Cummins in her which was from a standby generator at Gatwick airport. She will most certainly need a good refit!
