The Orange Ship

We’ve been living in Banff, Scotland, for just over a week now and the orange ship has been anchored off Banff for all that time. We can’t help wondering why it is there and why it isn’t going anywhere. We watch the ship daily whilst it swings around its anchor as the tide changes. The ship with nowhere to go!

The Tug

Many years ago I worked on deep sea salvage tugs and, since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for tugs. The second image shows the tug Statesman, the first tug I went to sea on in 1972 (this makes me feel VERY old!). The radio callsign of the statesman was 6ZQS (Liberian) but was changed to GSAA when the Statesman became registered in Britain (something to do with the Cod War!). The front of the Statesman looked like one of those expensive ocean-going yachts.
