      Now let me show you how an efficient and well trained tug crew works when hooking up tow line. The next picture was taken 19. April at 0742 hrs.

      Tug crew is pulling in the messenger line:

              Connection done. Clear the deck:

              This picture was taken at 0753 hrs. Time to make connection: 11 min.

              Ease out on the pennant to get the delta plate over the stern:


              The Stretcher is appearing:


              The Main Tow wire can be seen, pulled out on deck and ready for connection. I got side tracked a bit here so I did not get any pictures of that process, but is is basically a repeat of the first.

              Main tow wire connected at 0800 hrs. Total time to make up tow: 28 min., which is not bad, even in such perfect conditions.

                          Not the same picture. (Slightly different timing) This one was probably taken by the JDC Rig Manager, Inoue-san, or his assistant and sent to Capt. Kees by e-mail.
                          (We were all taking pictures as we left from the rig)

                            yes i saw that the angle was a little different,but maybe that a shot a lot of them,
                            just like me,a little different setup and a new shot.
                            but between you 2 maybe a few seconds.

                                These images should be posted in a pleasure craft thread, but since it's a rebuilt tug...., I'll post them here.
                                Today we had a visit from the ex. tug/ice breaker "Zeemeeuw", now motor yacht "Lars".
                                IMO 9129990 Call sign: PG3786 MMSI: 246859000 for those who want to dig deeper. I haven't been able to find any info on who's the owner.
