Above and Below: The Bostonian in Boston Dock.
In March 1967, with champagne running down her bow the "Bostonian", the port's new tug slid sideways into the water at Thorne near Doncaster. She was launched by the Mayoress of Boston Mrs. Martin Middlebrook. It was built in the yards of Richard Dunston Ltd. at a cost of £47,000 and replaced the port's 53 year old tug "Finlay".
