Hi and Welcome,
Did you ever sail on the S.S.Waltraad Woltemede, by any chance.
Doing a history on the yard where she was built in Leith, Scotland.

Hello Loftsman,
No, I never sailed in the tugs. I spent my time in tankers, bulkers and general cargo liners.
It may interest you to hear that the Wolraad Woltemade has just gone to the breakers after 33 years service. I have posted a picture of her in the gallery taken just before she left on her last voyage.
All the best.

Waltraad Woltemade

Hi Alistrain,
Thanks for the interest, i had heard that she was heading for the beach, such a pity for a fine vessel, but as they say i guess that's progress, if you dont mind i shall use your pic on my blog at http://leithbuiltships.blogspot.com

Thanks,
The Loftsman
