HISTORY:
The Vanguard, completed in 1841 by Thomas Ellis. It’s an earlier form of a wooden paddle tug with a heavily raked stem and tiller steering. The Tugs were used to tow sailing vessels in and out of the Tyne in Nort East England. They became a forerunner of the dedicated tugs that were to become a signi cant part of the scenery and history of the river Tyne for nearly 150 Yeas. The bene ts of the paddle tug were to allow larger vessels to navigate the river up to Newcastle and also to reduce the delays in port due to adverse wind and weather. After being in service and passed over to several owners, the Vanguard was scrapped in London in 1863.
