The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

half section of 500.000 tanker in Lisboa

With the Smit London we towed this half section of a 500.000 tanker from Lisboa to Gotenborg. Here is she being "peeled" off the quay.

Ed: Not the best of photos due to the glare, but the story is most interesting!

The glare you might be referring to is the exhaust fumes of our main engines visible in the top half of this image. This picture was originally taken on slide film and then 20 years later converted to digital.
