My most recent interest is the motor tug Swiftstone.
I volunteered to become Company Secretary of The Swiftstone Trust in 2002. This basically means I spend more time playing with paperwork than actually playing with the Tug itself. Still shouldn't complain, at least I get to spend some time messing about on the river.

Through friends from the Swifstone Trust I also get to play on the Massey Shaw, a Thames Fireboat and one of the Dunkirk 'Little Ships'. Details of this boat, its history and the Trust that now owns it can also be found on Swiftstone site shown above.
