St. Eval

This is the St. Eval, a British tugboat now owned by Dennis Washington, who owns, essentially, everything. (At least, everything visible looking east from Lonsdale Quay).  The St. Eval started life in the 1920's working with the last of the cargo sailing ships, spent the war rescuing torpedoed ships in the English Channel, and served as a tender ship for an America's Cup yachter, before being bought by the owner of SeaSpan, moved here and refurbished.  It's an elegant boat, brightening up a cloudy dull day at the Quay.
