by Andrew Wiltshire
The author’s fascination with tugs began at the age of five in South Wales back in 1966. Since then, Andrew Wiltshire has gained a fine reputation as one of the UK’s leading writers on maritime matter. Renowned for publications of meticulous research and high-quality photos, this is another fine book. Workhorses of the maritime world, the tug’s main work is ship-handling, but they have many other roles too. The reader is taken on a journey through the South Wales ports of Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea focussing on the tugs that work there. He follows the changes and development, as tug ownership moves from local companies to multinational companies. Illustrated with over 100 superb colour photographs, this should not be missed. Another excellent Coastal Publications book.
