As previously mentioned, a second Svitzer tug arrived on the Clyde on Thursday evening to assist with the company's towage commitments while two of the 'resident' fleet are out of action. YEWGARTH, recently drydocked, has lately been working in South Wales, and was built in 1985 by McTay at Bromborough on the River Mersey. She has a bollard pull of 50 tonnes, delivered by two Ruston main engines and Niigata Z-Peller azimuth units. The 36.85 metre long vessel, which is of 452 gross tons, was seen as she returned to Greenock having assisted with the departure of the tanker GLADIATOR this afternoon. Seen beyond her at anchor at the Tail o' the Bank is the Briggs Marine anchor handling tug KINGDOM OF FIFE.
