            You have a pretty comprehensive history of the Smit tugs there, Thijs. It is easy to see they are special for you.

                          sold to the breakers,new name ''global desteny''



                          dishonorable thrown on the beach



                          ​6 of 7 scrapped

                          the dutch 7 that rules the seas in towing are gone,except one, the former ''Smit New York''.
                          if we could save one ,the ''Smit Rotterdam'' was on top of the list of smit enthousiasts ,it would be great.
                          the only chance of saving one is the ''smit New York'' .
                          just like they couldend save the ''Zwarte Zee'' (3 or 4),is the chance smal that we can get her back .
                          sure we have the ''hudson'' and the ''elbe'' ,but those warn't the big famous tugs like the ''zwarte zee'' or one of the 3 biggest Smit tugs.
                          but it is the same problem like preserve the oceanliners,no money and mostly no place for them

                            As I said earlier, a comprehensive history of the Smit tugs. But sad that only the one remains.

                              Especially sad when you have visited or worked with all of them, as I have.
