    Default Cates tugs.

    A.J. Hawker kindly provided me with a picture of a ship I was on, Salvesen’s “Salvada”. She was in a port and had a couple of tugs around her with the name “Cates” on them. Anyone have an idea of what port this may have been given the name on the tugs.

    i’m no too good at that’s Doc, maybe AJ can get it from the gallery. In looking at my picture library on my iPad, I noticed another ship I was on, Denholm’s “ Scotstoun” with the same tugs.

    If you read this Peg, can you post the pictures please.

    Hi Duke
    As Cates Tugs are situated in Vancouver Canada I am sure that it must have been some Port there will have to look around and see.

    The Tugs will be hard to ID Duke as they are all (there are several) numbered names like Charles H Cates # 1 #2 #3 and so on.
    If you look at this Link and open each PDF File in turn you will get Pictures of the Tugs ,
    Cheers

    You probably did Peg, I forgot. Thanks.

    I was more interested in the location than the tugs, I was just using them as an identifier. Thanks Doc.
