I understand she now has her certification for towing and should be returning from tilbury on Thursday 24th Feb under her own power. Would like to look forward to seeing Suncrest underway once again!

Left Vic Dock Buoy last night about 11pm and now in Tilbury Dock. Apparently has a contract with craft out of the west india dock?
