        Caterpillar seems to be a quite common engine choice on many of these boats. Caterpillar engines have (had?) a wonderful, easily recognizable "crackling" sound. The tenders of the SS Norway both had Caterpillar engines.

              Typhoon is a bit more interesting than other tugs, she is a little different in a very positive way.

              I wonder if this one can be used as a traditional harbour / Port tug as well?

                Maybe Ruud can explain it better, but in my opinion she was first designed to tow barges and received later a conversion for pushing also. Have a look here:

                Impressed about her age... she was built in 1959, even 5 years before Lofoten!

                She is a true veteran still going strong!

                      Almost look like the Multratug did a spin to show her best sides to you.

                        You think?
                        The port is wide enough to turn her there, so why here!!
                        But thinking of that a tig can just as fast backworths than frontwarths with the same manouvrability

                          the old ' "Smit London '' here at the end of her life as '' Global Change '' on the beach at Alang India. I came on a facebook group about vessel demolition on those beaches, and asked if there was someone who had images of the 3 large Smit tugs of the demolition. I got a message from a man from India,Mr Mehul Kothari who owns a ship demolition yard at Alang and he sent me these pictures. no pictures of the demolition itself, they don't do that during the demolition. for them it's just an object that should be demolished. he had only the ''Smit London'' for demolition,the other 2 he hadn't had them. she was gone within 3 months
