  1. I feel that Peel Ports needs to identify the guard tug better. The first time I saw a tanker discharging there I waited for large traffic to pass downstream, then got as far out into the river as I could, whilst ensuring I remained on the correct side of a tug hanging around there! Needless to say I was shouted at, which shows that I was as close as I could safely be to the tug whilst traveling upriver. I’m not sure how to unambiguously mark the tug as a guard tug, I leave that to PP to think about.
