From "British Steam Tugs" by P. N. Thomas 1983, p75
"Although she was built in 1923 the Audacious had a number of features which were somewhat out-dated. The rounded fairing over the side passage had been common in the early dates but had hardly been used since the early 1900's. The deck was sheathed in 5" x 2½" pitch pine over almost the whole length when the contemporary tugs had wood "deadening" only over the accommodation. She had samson posts on the foredeck only, having none abreast of the hook. The davits did not go down to the main deck but pivotted in heavy castings fixed to the fairings".
