Ship No 519

Was the third of the three ship order for Harbour Tugs. FLYING CHILDERS being ordered for the Clyde Shipping Company this time, and the difference between her and her two sister ships was the fact that CHILDERS had no fire fighting capability.

FLYING CHILDERS at 336 grt, had a length between perpendiculars of 34 metres, with a beam of 9.2 metres, along with a design draught of 4,5 metres.

She was launched from the Leith Shipyards of Robb Caledon on 21st of May 1976.

She had a somewhat chequered career which you will be able to read all about on the new website which should be online by next weekend.
