I served on this tug as 2nd mate and later as 1st mate. Got to go to Antarctica to tow the Lindblad Explorer to Talcahuano. then around cape horn intending to go back to cape town. Got sent back to Beunos Aires to tow the Stolt Capricorn to scrap. towed a huge rig barge across the south atlantic not even a year later. What a great memory the photo evokes! two Lister Blackstones that sipped diesel and made hardly any noise. By contrast the sister ship Cuaseway Adventurer was a brute with Alco's. maybe more of the old crew could post memories here. I will try to stimulate some dicussion

Ex Causeway Salvor. Really handy boat that ran off the smell of an oil rag.
Can't believe she's still going strong

Hi Brent, she was used last year to transport large steel sections of motorway overpasses to
Melbourne from Launceston, seems a handy vessel.
