A poor image of the NESS POINT taking shelter at Scarborough 16.10.04. Looks to be a converted tug.

The name was used for the Lowestoft tug built in 1937 for LNER by Dunstons.
Wonder if she has any Lowestoft connections.
Cheers, George

Yes, was in Lowestoft for a while also Great Yarmouth and Cuxton on the Medway. Seems to have dropped off the radar since about 2005.
