Thanks a lot again Tomas.
Have been on your site and looking at the very well done animation lets me
get the exacts answers to all the question i was asking to you. IMAGES really worth thousand of words! is a very well done site. Explanations are all clear and as crisp as all the always really interesting shots you submit on Shipspotting.
Thanks a lot again for your help and for patience,
regards Robert08 :-D

Ok, no problem. The coral pavona is sailing around 10 knots. We are following behind. Once in a while, the pilot and masters on the ships we assist, lock their rudders midships, and we act as the rudder. But most of the time, we are acting as a safety, in case of engine failiure, such things. All tankers carrying gas/oil, have to have assist into port. its a little difficult to explain.
Have a look at our website, there you find everything you need to know.
click ship escort, youll find some cool animations.

Hi Tomas,
thanks a lot for your fast answer; you make clear a lot of think in my mind. But i am still questionning myself. You said your were at full speed behind Coral Pavona.
Was it to try to slowdown that ship or only to make sure it doesn't go around. At the time you take that shot, was the Coral arriving of leaving port.
Sorry to bother you again! Be sure i am greatly gratefull of your precious help that let me more and more discovering and understanding some secrets of the maritime world!
Best regards, Robert08 :lol:

Well, i understand perfectly. We(bruse) is at full speed behind her. When coral pavona sails on a straight line, we have a untight line. In corners and bends, we often assist the ship. Primarly we are there to escort the vessels. To make sure it doesnt go aground. This applies to tankers, and big bulkers, or ships in need of assisting.
As for the question about direction, bruse and sister bukken go either way just as quick. The opposite direction you see here, is because our winch is on the aft deck. hence the direction. I actually dont think i have escorted the other way, hehe!
If there is anything other you wonder about, feel free to ask.

Hi Tomas, take care; quite a jump and water must be quite cold right now!!!! One question : what is Bruse doing. I can see she does not push the ship; is she trying to slowdown Coral Pavona or what? If i look at the waves on its back, i can see the way she is going; she seems to me to go towards the ship! I am a little or a big bit confuse! Hope you understand what i means!

On that particular shot, the best tug in the world: "Bruse" appears as a marvelous children's toy in a giant pool, i would like a lot to play with!!

Great shot again, regards Robert08
