Kees, here is something about Clyde.

Marine News says: Converted at the Victor Lenac yard in Rijeka into a floating crane with a lifting capacity of 2000 tons. Includes a new bow section.
Nothing about Clyde sofar.

Nice addition to the other photographs of her. Was Clyde the operator or the crane maker?

This is the former French tanker Germinal, built 1964 (IMO 6409849) She was converted to a craneship in 1975. She was initially named PM27 and then Pearl Marine. In this picture you can still see my initials so I assume this shot dates from just after her conversion
