                  One of the many wooden tugs, known as ST tugs, still in daily use in Singapore in Pakarang view:

                  Very handy for a lot of jobs, like berthing, docking and un-docking of smaller ships and rigs and many other tasks.

                  Two ST tugs heading off to a new job:

                  One is in a hurry.

                  Let's get on board one of the ST tugs. (Not one of the above)

                  I cannot show you picture of the Toilet and Shower facilities, as they don't exists.

                  No luxury for the two crew members here.

                    This is not a traditional land fill, where everything and anything is dumped, covered and forgotten.
                    Here is some info from the National Environment Agency regarding the innovating way of handling wast:

                          I could not read the full name of this tug as I was photogrpahing through the dirty windows of a Staten Island Ferry. I think she is McAllister something....

                            A tug and barge have been sitting in the Borgundfjord for a few day waiting on weather to continue their voyage from Verdal to Flushing.

                            The tug is the Boulder belonging to Tschudi Offshore & Towage (Formerly ITC): http://www.tschudioffshore.com/page/947/Boulder

                            Here is a picture taken al long range while leaving via Hessafjorden and Breisundet:


                            The barge in tow is the H-627:


                            Which is about the same size as the barge M-44 that was used for the towage of the Veslefrik and Gyda Jackets from Verdal to Sognesjoen and the Gyda Field in 1989.

                            We also had to come into the fjord to wait on weather. (See Towage and Marine Operations Post #1 - 2)

                            The towage was assisted by the tug Silex:


                            And escorted out the fjord by the local tug Max Mammut:

                            Just like in 1989.
