Interesting boat there Carter, it looks very similar to our last Whaling boats that we have here in my town .. The Cheynes I, II, III & Cheynes IV... Whats this tubs history?

Mariano and Lex thanks for the comments. It was originally built for southern ocean whaling before this local towing co. bought it, so it probably was in your town at one time(photo 1978). I sailed on it once to 'rescue' a Chinese freighter that had broken its crankshaft.

It's a wonderful looking vessel, built for the rough stuff that baby. Lk it. Regards, Jock.

Thanks Sonjamar and Jock! Built to Lloyds A1 specs. I think it was 159 O.A., around 2000 HP and rode like a duck. Cheers, Carter

Diesel or steam Carter? I think our old Albany whalers were steam powered, triple expansion engines, old tech.

Hi Jock, seems to me it was steam originally, (I'm working my memory bigtime, photo was about 78)then switched to diesel. I do remember it had around 2000 HP.
