Anyone interested. On this web there is a video of a tug in very rough seas.
Should bring back a few memories to ex tug men. Just click on web, and scroll down for video. After video just keep clicking start for lots of other ships, and Interests. Very good site.

Brilliant but, er........not a tug! She is a Supply Ship built as an AHTS - anchor handling tug supply - but that's an ex tugman, ex supply ship man being a bit daft!

That was fairly normal weather up there - I knd you not.......

Thanks for the site Barney. I sailed in SL12 & 14 in Australia in'70/'71 and on the four Australian built SL's 31;32;33;34. The great thing about these small jobbies was they had marine diesels and not tractor engines and didn't oil up when standing by under the rig. Grifmar
