Smit Rotterdam..... I buildt a wooden model of her as a kid, and i have seen her "live" once, absolutly the nicest tug i know of.
Sad news. My favoriteship of all times, "Tore Hund" also went to the breakers recently.

Oh well, thats life...

And still no indication on local demolition reports that she is due to be beached.

Now moved north, away from Alang Beach itself, to an anchorage off Ghoga (but this is also used as a pre-beaching anchorage).

So if I read right, the Destiny is in Colombo and the Succes is heading for Alang with a scrapper?
I sailed the London whilst under Smit flag. Fenominal ships..

I was onboard Smit Rotterdam in 1985 when she came to Aagotnes in Norway when she came in with her tow, the drilling rig Polar Pioneer.  She had towed the New built rig from the Far East.  She thereafter left for her home port for dry docking. A lovely tug and at that time one of the worlds strongest.
