Available for angling or other charters out of Whitby, seen here in 2004 and 30/01/2007.
The former naval tender ALNMOUTH Y13 completed by Isaac Pimblott at Northwich under yard number 809 in 1964.

A change of colour and looking a bit neglected on 1st May, I presume she is still in use for angling expeditions?

No work and no income, I suppose, until they are allowed to take anglers and others again.

A coat of Red Lead will do the trick to spruce her up ;)

I wouldn't like to guess how much of the old Red Lead the TCC used in its day or the cost of it, it was a matter of "there's a bit of rust there, quick stick some Red Lead on it", preferably on a Saturday or Sunday when it attracted overtime payment as the job was normally Mon to Friday ;)
Down the Engineroom of course with the Tees being the polluted river that it was Condenser cleaning was the overtime payment backstop along with work on the Boilers which required a shutdown. The TCC was a great job with some great characters but not exactly well paid even for the Chief Engineer bearing in mind the cost of the Marine Plant I was looking after and of course the other name for a Boiler is a Bomb if not looked after and monitored correctly by the Chief not forgetting the Fireman (on a Coal Fired job)another underrated job. No Firemen,no Steam, the vessel is not going anywhere.
