  1. Don't know if this has been posted anywhere yet Greenlaw
  2. 67ft tug based on Yarwoods large Northwich Based on a Large Northwich Cant seem to see many similarities!!
  3. Historic - 1959 No name Looks like a river class boat or a lighter!
  4. I put the AC in Gorse when I owned it in the late 80s. It replaced an SR2. The gearbox went after about 6 months and was repaired quite easily. The engine had hand start but was almost impossible to hand start without the use of the cotton plugs that screwed into the head, I think they were called Zundfix? Got stuck one time in the winter without any and had about 4 blokes taking turns at starting it which it finally did after about an hour!
  5. Dont know if this has been seen before? Chiswick
  6. I have an old copy of the Bargee backed up on a website. http://workingboats.com/canal_film/Bargee.avi
  7. Sort of historic I suppose. EX BW Work boat LINK and this one Link2
  8. I must admit the engine sounded very unlike a 3..
  9. Yarwoods Historic butty for sale! Apologies if this has already been posted! Butty for sale
  10. I was surprised to read the description as well. I sold Gorse to the current owner in 1986. It had a draught of around 2'9" if I remember correctly, the counter is taller from the waterline than most of the other josher motors. I remember the front was hugely overbuilt by waterways and was a very strong boat. The engine I put in to the boat around 1984 I think to replace and aged SR2. Bit quirky but went well. I am sure I told him at the time it was Yarwoods boat!
  11. Indeed!! I have seen bad pictures but not very often to get nothing!
