Does anybody know what happened to these two tugs. I served as cook on them in 1992 or there abouts and can't find any pictures or ref. to either anywhere. The Pride was working in the north sea and the Eskil was working the Irish sea. Both are/were Norwegian and registered in Grand Caymans.
Perhaps they've been sold on /renamed and or either scrapped. Would love to know. They were great little tugs ! (Thumb)
Best regards. Gino
