LATEST PHOTO'S

 
From an old postcard of Ramsgate a quartet of Watkins tugs laid up in the harbour. The outside tug is Palencia [name just readable on the original]. Inboard of her is almost certainly Fabia with the cowl topped funnel. Next in is probably Canada and on the wall could possibly be Scotia. Photo probabably taken in late 1930's.
 
CERVIA
 
The Cervia recently acquired two new masts which were hoisted into position at Ramsgate. Photos courtesy Mike Houckham.
