Hello Chris,
I bought the book new about 15 years ago, but it seems to be sold out now. I checked it at amazon.com and abebooks.com, they sell used books from different sellers in the US, UK, etc. 15 years ago I bought other used books from abebooks.com, mainly Shipbuilder reprints, and it worked then (I got the books and paid via credit card). A actual search at abebooks.com (author: P. N. Thomas, title: British Steam Tugs) lists 23 used books from sellers worldwide and 6 from sellers in the USA. As explained, I reconstructed my Southampton Titanic steam tugs with plans of other contemporary tugs from this book and photographs of the Titanic tugs. A actual search brought up the following additional bits and pieces: Their first tug tender was the Albert Edward (120 ft., 160 GRT, 100 nhp, twin screws), built 1886. Hercules was built 1890, Vulcan 1893, Ajax 1894. The tug tender Hector (1903-1961) measured 130 ft. (382 GRT, 1400 ihp, twin screws). Neptune was built 1910, had twin screws and 1600 ihp. This link http://www.shipmodel.com/models/hector-full-hull-bld- (with - after bld the link works) shows a model of Hector, please note the twin screws, derrick, portholes and deck benches, as Hector was a tug tender, Neptune is very similar, but with a mahogany bridge, maybe slightly larger than Hector. The funnels were buff in 1912. This link http://www.ebay.com/itm/Model-Boat-Plan-1-48-Scale-Radio-Control-30-Tug-Boat-Joffre-Plan-Article/292016859297 contains three jpg in enlarged version, a plan and description of the steam tug Joffre, which is a good base to reconstruct the larger twin screw Hector or Neptune! As mentioned before, I have a few alterations of these models already on my To Do List, so I will post photographs later this year.
Best regards,
Michael
