        Tug London in drydock

        Here is a tug that has featured before in this thread, the London.
        She is presently in drydock at ST Marine in Singapore. I think she is getting the same upgrade as her sister ship the Rotterdam.

        Here she is just barely on the blocks:


        And dry:


        The Pakarang view, or as close to it as I could get:


        This is a bit confusing view, shot along one side from down in the dock:


        And a side view. Even the innards of the funnel can be seen:

          what i have heared (or was it in my dreams)
          that she get the yellow/bleu band back on het bow,the addet smit before londen,painting her funnels bleu and removed that awefull name of her hull.
          best regards Thijs

                Thank you so much for sharing those tug-pictures wesley...

                The URSUS looks like a very wide tug... do you happen to know if this is a conventional propeller or VS-driven tug?

                I would also like to ask if anyone knows if there are many VS-driven tugs still being built?

                (VS referring to Voit Schneider propulsion system).

                  The URSUS is an Offshore Anchor Handling/Ocean Towage Tug, not a Harbour Tug.
                  She is only 65 m. LOA, but has 19,000 Bhp/218 m.t. Bollard Pull. She need to be wide. (Beam 18.50 m.)
                  Here is specs for those who are interested: http://www.harms-bergung.de/Pictors/...0090107-st.pdf

                  As for whether Voith-Schneider propulsion is popular in Harbour Tug, I had a look at the PSA Marine fleet of 59 Tugs: http://www.psamarine.com/fleet.php
                  Only one, VST 1, built 1974 has VS propulsion.
                  I think that is a general trend, although some VS Tractors are still being built.

                          I delivered three tug similar to this one to Dar es Salam and Mombasa on behalf of the East African Harbour Corporation.
                          Built in Singapore with all Japaneses equipment and machinery.

                          The first one I Captaine my self, but for the next two I hired someone else to do that job. Maybe one of the worst tips I have ever experiensed across more than 4,000 n.miles of open ocean in a craft that was designed and built to work in protected harbours.
