Three AHTs Yugoslavian built, Chambon Bora, Chambon Alize and Chambon Scirroco. One of them foundered in heavy seas off the Isle of Wight some years ago....does anyone know what became of the other two? I was involved with them when they were bought by Alexandra Towing then our ways parted.

Paedrig - can help with two, both sites with photos. On the Alize site, scroll down to page 17.
BORA = ???(removed by Benjidog as invalid)

ALIZE = ???(Removed (http://www.ibiblo.org/maritime/Scheepvaartnieuws/Pdf/scheepvaartnieuws/2005/oktober/218-02-10-2005a.pdf) by Benjidog as invalid)

Having a quick scratch about on the net, no luck with Scirocco - maybe it was the one that was lost.
Cheers,
Dennis.

Thanks Dennis, having problems with the links at the moment, however, after a mental rummage, your supposition about the Sirrocco (I misspelt it) could be correct as I believe she became "Implacable". The annoying thing is I used to know which was which but have forgotten! One of them changed names during Alexandras tenure from Indefagitable (imagine having to use that over the air) to Avenger. Interesting vessels to work on from a technical stand point, but gave me a few grey hairs.
