In December 1989 I worked on a VLCC being towed from Fawley to Lisbon by the tug Wotan - I have not seen anything on her for years - what happened to her?

She was a very handsome and quite powerful tug

I'm assuming that this was the Bugsier tug WOTAN. She was involved in a collision in 1990, sank and was subsequently raised and broken up at Brugge.

Thanks for that Phil, always wondered what had happened to her, all I had found was that the engines had been removed from her hulk.
She towed a 287,000 tonner through Biscay at 8 knots

Thanks

Hej,

The WOTAN was one of the so called “middleclass-” tugs of the Bugsier- company. Sisterships were SIMSON, TITAN and ATLANTIC.

SIMSON was converted into a yacht in 1993, TITAN has still the same outfit and is owned by the Vietnam-navy, last time spotted in Saigon in sept95 and ATLANTIC was renamed in KHOZAM and into somekind of navyyacht/ tender , owned by a Saudi (?!).

The two biggest tugs of Bugsier are/were OCEANIC ( still sailing under Bugiser- / german flag and used as an emergency response vessel in the german bight/ north sea, chartered by the german government) and ARCTIC ( converted into a yacht in 1993)
More about both can be found here in the fourm:

Prewar,a large German salvage tug named SIMSON was based at Harwich..
In 1938 I was Mate in sailing barge NORMAN bound for Great Yarmouth with cargo of bagged linseed cake ..A few miles off Harwich we scraped over a sandbank which caused a leak in the barge's bottom.
We fired off a distress flare which soon brought SIMSON to us and she moored alongside .She was bigger than NORMAN.
Within minutes the German crew had removed hatchboards and some of the cargo... Pipes were put into the hold and pumping began..
They then passed a large square of canvas over the side with lines attached to its corners and dragged it into position to cover the damage..
We were then taken slowly into Harwich..
It would be interesting to learn the fate of SIMSON..

Deviating from the thread but I was very interested to hear you say you sailed on sailing barges. When I was a kid I remember a sailing barge coming into King George dock, Hull, quite regularly. Her name was "Thyra" and I believe she was from Harwich. If my memory serves me right she carried a cargo of grain. I was always fascinated by these vessels and can imagine it took great skill to manoeuver them. Do you remember the "Thyra"?

Try and get a hold of the following Book as it has alot in about the Thyra plus a photo

SAILORMAN BETWEEN THE WARS - being the journal of a Thames, Medway and caostal bargeman.

Thankyou Gdynia - Yes it is a good book I have also read it.
Ray,you have a good memory remembering THYRA . Many barges traded to Hull with grain and a return cargo of coal from Keadby or Goole for the Thames. I think the last owners of THYRA were London & Rochester Trading Co [Crescent Shipping Co ] and she was fitted with an engine some years ago ..I dont know if she is still trading...
Try typing in - sailing barge thyra - you may get a result..

Hello Jan

I am working on the re activation of the Titan for long distance towage. She is in Saigon Port and has had very little use over the last 15 years.

At present we are arranging for a Bollard Pull test and recertification of the towing gear. Will be interested to see what the results are after all these years.

Any information you may have on the history of the vessel's towing projects would be appreciated.

Look forward to hearing from you

Bill Wallace
