Title: Tug / Work boat
Post by: Peter Ashley on February 06, 2019, 12:14:54 am
I have just received a photograph of a Tug/Work boat believe to be "AKUNA". I believe it was loaded on to "HAPPY DELTA" in Portland Australia and rumor was it was going or has been to Terra Nova Bay. I have not been able to find anything out about this vessel or the owners. On the superstructure it has the number 443233 and on the hull in has Bass Strait Salvage. I would be grateful for any information.
