    There was 182 built numbered up to 183 but no number 13 as it was considered an unlucky number. Good history at this link http://www.steamtugbrent.org/history-of-tid-class-tugs.html
    It makes a lovely model tug and i will have to build one some day.

    "No mention of her ever being named Ipswich!"
    Silly me!πŸ™„
    Of course Ipswich is not her name - that's her home port, where she is apparently being restored now.

    Hi OMC,
    "TID 172 was built by Henry Scarr Ltd, Hessle, (which had been taken over by Dunston) and completed in 1946. ...."

    No mention of her ever being named Ipswich! Poetic license on the part of the modellerπŸ˜‰
    Happy tugging😊
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Nice model of a TID, well worth buying even if she wasn't named after your home town.

    Cheers, Nerys
