Hi michael,
this is a damned good picture of the MV "Atlantic". I have never seen it from this side. I used to work on the salvage tug "Atlantic" and also on all the other tugs of Bugsier; Hamburg. Do think it is possible to get print (photos) of these pictures shown? Please get in contact with me.
