Three old ladies together
In beautiful September weather we tied up in Crinan Basin alongside two other boats with long and interesting histories.
The former tug, Duke of Normandy II, was built in Germany in 1934, arriving in Scotland in the 1970's from Jersey. VIC32, one of the last surviving steam puffers, was built in Yorkshire in 1943 for the Admiralty. http://www.savethepuffer.co.uk/history.htm
