Photographer:Gerolf Drebes [View profile]Title:HERMANN WATTENBERGAdded:Jan 03, 2008
Photo Category: Near-shore fishing vessels
German fishing vessel Hermann Wattenberg (ex-Südfall) in a German port in the early 70 ies.
I do not know, which port it is, the photo was taken by my father.

The following more detailed description of the photo and ships was kindly provided by site visitor Wolfgang Richter:

The picture shows the former Kriegsfischkutter at her last berth in government duty at the new brigde of the former "Institut für Meereskunde" (IfM) now "Geomar" in Kiel port, Kiellinie. In the foreground you can see the back view of the small research boat "Sagitta", now a private boat from the biological station Laboe, behind the "Herrmann Wattenberg" is the silhouette of the ancient research cutter "Alkor", now replaced by a new ship under the same name, visible. On all of these ships I have participated in a lot of research cruises and diving operations. In the farer background the huge portal crane of the former HDW shipyards is visible. After sale to private owners , "Hermann Wattenberg" cruised in the Mediterranian Sea for a while, after her return to German Waters she ( under a new ship's name) grounded in the North Sea and was given up.
