      Stuck on a beam:


      A few licks of the sledge hammer didn't do the trick. Let's try brute force:

      Sherpa put on a bit of power and BINGO!!!, problem solved.

      Before you ask; I don't know where the Superintendent got his coveralls from. He would definitively stand out in a Disco with those, especially with all the reflective tape sewn on.

        Much appreciated reportage of the “how they did it” kind that I always enjoy so much from you Ombugge.

          Interesting to see how much work there's behind just disconnecting a towing wire from a tug.
          There must also be some kind of emergency release for the line in case something goes wrong?

              The towing gear for a tug of 200 tonnes Bollard Pull is heavy and not easy to handle by hand. This well trained crew did it very quickly and safely, not standing in dangerous positions and not being in the way of each other, all trying to do the same job simultaneously.

              Emergency release from the tug is by paying out wire and let the end go over board.
              This being a "dead" tow (No crew on board the towed vessel) there were no quick release possibilities from that end. Normally the inboard bridle ends would be connected to Smit Brackets to allow emergency release also from that end.

                        Number 904/3: That rather unloved looking new ferry in the background? Is that the 'Norman Leader' - commissioned by LD Lines for Portsmouth - Le Havre but cancelled last year for a number of reasons - or something else?
