  6. Hello Richard, and a warm welcome to the forum from down in Sydney. A beautiful and a tragic ship! That looks a very fine model you're building of her. A mate of mine was master of the Lytellton ocean rescue tug at the time of the Wahine disaster and they were on standby to sail up to Wellington to assist if required. I remember him telling me that his wife was begging him not to go because of the severity of the weather and he saying that he told her that they were a rescue tug and their reason for existence was to rescue ships and people. He also said that they were actually very relieved when they were told they weren't needed - he said, "I'm not sure we would have got as far as Wellington in those seas." John John
