About the LNVT Owners Association
This web site is maintained by the Lord Nelson Victory Tug (LNVT) Owners Association. Our origins date back to 1999 when Tom Blackwood, Thistle Dew (46) and Mitch Page, Scuffy (42), started contacting owners. Over the years all available information about each tug has been recorded, along with the history of the LNVT fleet. Today almost all LNVT owners are members of the association and only one tug in the fleet (hull #61) is missing from our database. The Association is an all-volunteer organization, bringing together a small worldwide community of LNVT owners. We believe that recording and sharing information about our beloved tugs (individually and as a fleet) helps us maintain their condition and their market value. Membership is open to LNVT owners, wannabees, enthusiasts and friends.
