Slæbe og/eller bjærgningsbåde har altid fascineret mig. Deres kompakte styrke er ofte dybt imponerende. Jeg har set mange forskellige under mine dejlige ture til Europas store havnebyer. Især Rotterdam, Hamburg og Antwerpens havne vil jeg huske.Trods 2 glimrende ophold i Marseille fik jeg ikke set havnen rigtig. Også i Skandinavien (København, Stockholm og Gøteborg ) erindres nogle gode øjeblikke.
I Danmark er shippingselskabet Svitzer Wijsmuller det mest kendte, nu opkøbt af Maersk-gruppen.
En slæbebåd på arbejde er altid en seværdig oplevelse!

Tugs or pilotships have always been a pleasure watching. I have seen plenty of them by my visits to Eurpean harbours like Rotterdam, Antwerp and Hamburg. Marseille - well, I didn´t catch the harbour, while I was there. Scandinavia - especially in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Gothenburg has been a pleasure watching.
In Denmark the pilot-company Svitzer Wijsmuller is "world-famous", however they are nowadays a combined shipping company from the Maersk group - the biggest container-shippingcompany in the world and the biggest and leading Danish business corporation.
A tug or pilot is always a pleasant and seeworthy experience.
