Tug, Ulises
« on: February 18, 2019, 16:34:25 »
A friend was commenting on the Occre Ulises tug kit and sent a photo of a completed model.
I noted in the blurb that it is allegedly a model of a real tug, Ulises, which was an ocean going tug of the 1960s. However, on searching the web, I have not yet come across one single reference to this vessel excepting discourse concerning the model.

Has anyone any information or photo of the real vessel for I am now curious.

Hello

She's italian inspired style but she's not a real tug as many details are "strange" like the river style anchors, no davits for the small boats,  towing hook not on circular rail, etc...
