An old friend, one of the fleet of Nolty J.Theriot, Houma, Louisiana, brought over from the Mexican Gulf to work as anchor handlers and general tug boats for Brown & Root construction and pipe-laying barges operating in the North Sea in The 1960/70's Whitie LeBlanc was skipper of this one. They all had to have European Navigators on board to satisfy the BOT. But boy , could those CoonAss skippers handle those tugboats, spin inside their lenght and go full astern in a second.The Spanish deck crews worked up to their necks in bad weather on the deck, the seas came over the bow and down te side decks like a tidal wave.. She was built by the American Marine Corp; New Orleans in 1964 for Nolty J. Theriot, Houma. La. Sold to Tidewater Marine Services Corp; Morgan City, La. and renamed Ven Tide. Sold to Compania Naviera Asetec S.A de C.V; Tampico, Mexco and renamed Jaumave Asetec . I think she is now named Miss Isabella. 440 gt. 195 nt. 41.48 x 10.67 x 3.43 m. builders yard no. 861. Engines = General Motors, 1001 bhp. 9 kn.
