I did ask my salvage team on this today, they would have been surprised if “a paddle tug would have secured alongside the Temeraire; it would have needed very good fendering to ensure the paddles did not contact the hull of the Temeraire and it wouldn’t help that much in the manoeuvring of her.” There is a wreck of a paddle tug that has just been passed to HES in Scotland, a dive on that wreck may reveal further details of one of that period.
