“South Wales tugs in colour”


B O O K R E V I E W by : Frank NEYTS


Recently Coastal Shipping Publications published “South Wales tugs in colour”, written by Andrew Wiltshire. Tugs are the workhorses of the maritime world. Their main work is shiphandling but they have many other roles too. They are popular with enthusiasts and with the general public. In this book, the author takes a close look at tugs in the South Wales ports of Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea. He follows the changes as tug ownership has moved from local companies to national and multinational companies. The changes are illustrated by over 100 superb colour photographs, each with an informative caption. Once again, we have to admit, like all books issued by Coastal Shipping Publications, value for money!

South Wales tugs in colour” (ISBN 978-1-902953-93-9) is a softback (landscape format) book of 96 pages, lavishly illustrated with over 100 colour images. The price is £9.95 plus £1.00 UK postage and £2.50 overseas postage via all good bookshops, or directly via the publisher, Coastal Shipping, 400 Nore Road, Portishead, Bristol BS20 8EZ, UK.
