Hello

 :( I'm sad, so many ships serving for years from UK !

Blue Fish, Grey Fish, black Fish, Silver Fish, Sky Fish, Spry Fish, Star Fish, Sword Fish, Storm Fish, Green Fish, White Fish, and more ...







Most of them serve in North Sea from Lowestoft and Scotland during the 70's and then sold in Africa, Persian Gulf, etc...  There is still actually some one serving in Spain, Mexico for different compagnies. 

The one like my cat on her back waiting for caress is the former Storm Fish, after serving in oil industry she was used as tug in different countries and finish as Chapon in the French Riviera (Cannes, Monaco) as work ship. One time she was at Arles on the Rhone River waiting for shipyard maintenance and during a flood she come up but when the water left she was on ground like may cat waiting for caress ... She was staying like that for a year and (?)

The hull shape is well knowned and some other kind ship have the same, the French navy used to have 6 sister-ships serving now with African or Madagascar navies. Le Elan is the last one serving the French navy at Cherbourg     

  

perhaps we should move on to another picture huh??

I suppose this one is easy for one of you ...  I took this picture 6 years ago

And she now has a Chinese sister, the "Aoraki", as well. International tug design in a small New Zealand port :)

Which tug?

Hello

It's a pity, I like and I prefer to search the quizz than to present it ...

So next one.

I took this photo in 2005 and I only know her name at this time.

Hello

I've altered the name of the white yacht on back of the tug as it could be an indication about the county.  I've also cut the picture beacaus of a flag on the boat back of the white yacht - no other alteration   ^-^ 

I know the name of this tug as I have taken a picture from back. You can try to remove those tyres with photoshop to see if there is a name  ::)

Any clues ??  A little bit early isn't it ?
