[COLOR="Blue"]What a splendid example of a WW1 era vessel Rui, and still earning her keep. Remarkable!
She must have been very well built and cared for throughout her long life.
Obrigado, Rick[/COLOR]

Unfortunately I have not traced full story of GLORIOSO/FOCA, but I know that while working in Tagus estuary she was towing the water supplying barge VIUVA ALEGRE and later she was sold for river Douro towing her owner sand barges.
