                    The island is Sultan Shoal, which have featured here on CVF many times before.
                    Here it is again, seen from the same side as in the picture above, but without the tug:


                    Different perspectives:




                    The old Light House is still active, but no longer manned: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sultan_Shoal_Lighthouse

                    The living quarters are now rented out as Holiday Chalets to PSA employees and friends.
                    Here is a link to a report from a visit there: http://wondercreation.blogspot.sg/20...tan-shoal.html

                    You could take hundreds of ships pictures from there in a day or two, as well as fishing and exploring the rock pools for all kinds of interesting life forms.

                      That sounds like the perfect vacation spot. Send the wife into town for a spa visit and I'll run laps around the island with my camera.

                              Unfortunate, but I'm afraid we all have to go one day.
                              When you are no longer economically viable it is time to call it a day.

                              I have worked with all these three tugs many times and many places over many year, but they are no longer up to modern day demand for efficiency, or safety when handling heavy gear in rough weather.

                              Quite a lot of money were spent on them the last few years to make them more fuel economical, but it was not enough, especially for the new Owners of Smit.

                                Here is a couple of tugs that still have a few years ahead of them:




                                Owned by PSA Marine in Singapore, but flying the Malaysian flag while working in Lumut.

                                These two has been shown many time before on CVF, in the HLV thread.
                                They will appear there again soon.
