          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.

                at maasmond newsletter, the scrappers placed an ad, ''for sale'' 2 werkspoor engines,so they think that are good enough for second hand use
