Britains Last Paddle Tug - John H Amos

Three paddle tugs survived into 'preservation'. Sadly, thanks to the National Maritime Museum's scrapping of the perfectly maintained Reliant only two remain - the Eppleton Hall in San Francisco (having voyaged across the Atlantic under her own power!) and the John H Amos which has remained closer to home.  Sadly un-restored we see her on the banks of the River Medway awaiting funding to be in place in order to save this unique historic vessel.

 More details on her plight here - John H Amos and some shots of Eppleton Hall
