My son's "newest toy"

Speaking of tugs, I like the looks of the Tsavliris Hellas, Philippine registered, Greek owned, 1978 Belgium-built, 10,000 BHP, 67-meter-long, 14K ranged vessel I saw last week in Ponta Delgada, Azores.

RE: My son's "newest toy"

The tug "Hella" was on a dead ship tow in the Gulf of St Lawrence about 10 days ago and the wire parted, putting the ship on Cape Slattery. We passed it just after it happened. We were in short steep seas in the straights of Hongeido towing a crane barge to the great lakes. My understanding is that she is still stranded and very damaged. The tow was bound for Turkey to the ship breakers. I'm not sure if it is the same tug or not. The AIS signature we saw was 50+ meters.
My company told us we may put our tow to the dock in Montreal and go back to the stranding site but we never got any further word on it. Several of the Canadian pilots we used had been on the tow just 2 days before.

This all smacks of the book "Grey Seas Under" by Farley Mowatt.*

I love that green deck. Willy's in green trim and could do that nicely.
