Friston Down to be renamed?

Posted on

Once a regular sight on the Thames & Medway with GPS Marine up until last year when her propeller reportedly picked up a wire and her shaft was damaged.   The tug has since been laid up at Chatham awaiting repairs.     It is now reported that her propeller was recently repaired by Invicta Marine and she will soon return to service, however a source states under a new name – GPS Anglia?

With 1250BHP (re-engined in 2006) , this makes her the most powerful of the GPS fleet on the Thames. Either way it will be great to see her underway again.
