@ George.Schneider, davidships and Notchy: Here is the third picture
Do you all think I should rename the third picture with PRESBERI ?
Thanks for your advices

Thank you gentlemen. I am still looking for a third picture of these two ladies in order to find out the name of the unknown one. With best regards.

Possibly from the U.S. Army Second World War "Large Tug" series. Over 600 were built.See "Craig Trans" for comparison.

When sold to Costa Rican owners, SHERI was renamed PRESBERI, so that is probably the correct name for this photo. I believe she's Platzer number 140.

The other tug looks right for BAY CITIES, which I saw in Limon in 1979. I don't know an IMO for her, she was Bludworth hull #1 built in 1946 as ROLAND.
