by J. Pottinger

COLOMBO harbour, although comparatively compact and sheltered, is subject to strong winds during the south-west monsoon periods, and the harbour tugs have to be of sufficient power to handle ships during the severe conditions resulting. They also have to venture outside the harbour breakwater, which is a wholly artificial structure built out in two arms which enclose the harbour, leaving a narrow opening for access, much like Cape Town, and in fact the tugs of both ports are of somewhat similar design. The conditions dictate that the tugs have to be of comparatively long length, coupled with heavy displacement.

Ships berth alongside the quays or head and stern to buoys, and the tugs are used mainly to push the ships; consequently bluff bows and large fenders are called for. Such features are incpororated in the Nandhimitra.

 The powerful simple lines and uncomplicated superstructure are ideal subjects for working models, without calling for any outstanding skill on the part of the modeller, and he can quickly see some result for his labours, and can have the pleasure of sailing his creation in the water.

Such a subject is the Nandhimitra, built in 1966 by Richard Dunston of Hessle, which is of distinctive design, out et the usual run of tugs featured in Model Boats. The prototype is 124 ft. 7 in. long and overall and 31 ft. beam, and has a draught of 13 ft. Power is by two diesel
