Seen here on the Derwent River in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Both vessels have been laid up in Hobart for several years for seperate reasons and now the Kap Farvel (The black and white vessel) is preparing to tow the Taruman to India where both vessels will be broken up.
Update: Kap Farvel and Taruman spent a couple of days anchored in the Derwent River, the plan was in fact for the Taruman to tow the Kap Farvel to India. After departing the Second time the vessels were at sea for 9 days before the Kap Farvel started taking on water, the crew amazingly had time to transfer all the fuel and oil off her before she sank. Tha Taruman arrived in India some months later where she is no more.
