    Is that because she is ocean going? I found the other photo you posted of the Kolga.

      Kolga in an Anchor Handling Tug (AHT) specially designed for assisting Heerema's fleet of Crane and Pipe laying vessels in operations worldwide.
      Not all that special, just fairly new.

        Thank you, Ombugge. Well, she's special in that she has a particular role out at sea instead of just pulling freighters and liners around!

                        as a member/friend of Facebook group of smit tugs they placed images of the ''rode zee''
                        normaly tugs save lives and vessels in need,this one in her later years was taking lives,
                        she was a drug smuggling vessel. (not own anymore by Smit though)

                        here the story

                          Umm-ummm, interesting. I see that someone asked whether any drugs were actually found onboard. One reply said that it was marijuana and was thrown overboard, then a further reply questioned that and asked for the source. There was nothing further.
                          I Googled, but although there are other photos I couldn't find the outcome.

                              Ah, end of story for the Rode Zee. Thanks.
                              It mentioned that the tug replaced the Roode Zee, which was torpedoed while towing the caissons for Mulberry harbour. I have seen them in situ when a group from my school went to stay in a convent in Bayeux and we were taken to Port en Bessin and Arromanches. Being so soon after the war (the trip was in 1946) we knew the history of that area and felt its poignancy.
