Hi Jan,
I have a photo of Bugsier 7 taken in Sunderland when she was helping with the loading of cranes from Liebherr, I will post it in the tugs section and you can also view it from my gallery.
Kind regards,
Steve.

Bugsier had also a 2nd tug like the "Bugsier 7", the "Bugsier 6" !

she was used in Wilhelmshaven untill the late 80ties. later she was laid up for a couple of times. she sailed in Hamburg, in the baltic sea and for towingjobs in north europe. she was sold in 2000 to "Midgard Towing" at Hampshire (GBR), renamed "Gard 1", sailing under the Belizeflag!

here are some pictures of the "Bugsier 6"
