Hi Glenn,

This is an another TASMAN CHIEF, namely original SOCOL 8 sailed as TASMAN CHIEF in 2002-2003. As on this ship there is the partly open deck below the wheelhouse which is only on SOCOL 7 & SOCOL 8 of the Russian owned ones. Also the first 4 L-GRACHTs had the similar looking superstructure.
