weapon to force theirs "passengers" into liferafts, outside the coast of
Gotland. Baltietis were soon taken by the Swedish Coast Guard. The crew
was arrested, and soon after that, judged to prison in Sweden. The crew
rented Baltietis from the Latvian owners.

And the tug ended being sold to Orla Produktforretning at towed to Frederikshavn, Denmark, for breaking up. Was broken up during the spring of 2005
I will put a photo on from the breaking. Pity a steam tug has to be broken up nowadays.
