    Re: World's TUGBOATS

    Thank you for the great photos. The snow and ice reminds me to not complain about the winter here in North Carolina.

      Yes, there was some ice both in The Black Sea and on the Danube River in Romania.

      Here's a picture from the bow of "BB Coaster" after the first day with icing in The Black Sea. I will not even tell how it was after the second day... minus 8 degrees celsius and 50 kts wind from north is a bad combination out on sea

            a former tug of Bureau Wijsmuller ,the other big dutch towing company (sold to svitser, crab)

            the ''tempest'' together with her sister ''typhoon'' the biggest and strongest of Wijsmuller.

            now both are ITC tugs, and 1 or both are for sale,according a dutch forum.

                        Here is Lourdes C in Venice. She escorted RCL's Voyager of the Seas into port.

                          Presented before in this thread, but amazingly still in service and operational with the Frei Taubåtservice AS, the small "Kar" built in the 1890's seen moored in Vågen in Kristiansund today

                            I assume she was originally steam powered? It looks like she's diesel now.

                                I suppose so. For sure it's on diesel these days, and without me knowing it, it would surprise me much if it is much more than the hull itself that is from the 1890s.
