    TB "Lupus" moves the trawler "Ontika" (LT) to another dock on the north side of Tromsø yesterday afternoon.

      I love the combination of trawler and tug in this image, and there is so much detail of both vessels to study and enjoy
      Plus the contrast of their red and white with all that fresh greenery! Such a lovely time of year in Tromsø.

      i borrow this image Bengt ,placing it in the Smit group

    Thank you for the comment, Cecilia
    This trawler has been towed a number of times over the last 2-3 years here in Tromsø,so it's well known.

    And yes, it's a nice season now, we only need some of the heat they've had further south in Norway.
    But I expect it to get a little hotter eventually.
    We know where we live.

                    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?
