    We purchased the tug Kennet from the Thames Concervancy and took it to where we lived In Sunbury on Thames. We rebuilt the Crossley engine but had trouble with the hydraulic gear change which was a bit crude. We sold it to Ray Speechley of Ivor Bucks and he had it on a canal in Ivor.
    I live now in Nottingham and would like to see it again.
    I would have thought that the Crossley engine would have still been in good order although it is now some 40 years since we rebuilt it.

    Best regards. Chris
