Tugs in UK

Hi all,

New to the forum, but follower of captain for awhile.

I’m curious if anyone has experience working on tugs in UK ports or rivers. I’ve heard a lot of conflicting reports about the industry over there (I’m in the states, but considering relocating to the UK).

What’s the schedule like for tugs in UK ports or rivers? How’s the pay compare? Is the work drying up, as I’ve heard some remark?

Anyone have first hand knowledge of British tug work?

Thanks all. Great forum.
