KRASIN

The icebreaker KRASIN seen here early morning as we pass her on the 5th August 2007 moored on the Neva at St Peterburg. She was built way back in 1917 at Newcastle as the Russian SVYATOGOR. She was often in the headlines. In the 1920's she rescued the icebreaker LENIN and the passenger liner MONTE S

Nice to see her looking a bit more shipshape. She came into the Kanonersky Yard in St. Petersburgh in the spring of 1994. I happened to be be in the yard at the time and one of my crew made friends with a member of her crew. As a result of his visiting to our ship we were invited aboard Krassin and given the royal tour. She was in rather rough shape at the time and with only one boiler room operatinal. She was at the end of her operational career and the crew were concerned as to her fate. Good to see she has survived.
