RHEA

Called in at Madeira on 27 August 2005. Hove to off Madeira whilst towing very large barge southbound, passed care of barge to Madeira tug CTE Passo Gouveia for approx 8 hours and went into Funchal presumably for fuel/ stores. Then picked up barge and headed south. Looked a right crate, black diesel
