Alianza Rosario

IMO : 7419169

Build : 1976 by Scheepswerf & Machinefabriek Ysselwerf BV in Capelle a/d IJssel, the Netherlands, nr 162 as Winchman

A beautiful name but what a ugly ship hides behind that name! This is a real giraffe-neck tug but then with a complete house on top of the neck! This makes the tugs featured in this post look up in envy! I can not believe that my fellow countrymen build this thing like this so I guess there must be pictures out there with her looking better: without the tree-hut on top.

 

Besides looking ugly: look at the last picture: I guess you better wear oxygen-masks up there as you probably will be gassed out by the exhaustgasses! Good design!

    This vessel was originally “MT Guarsdmen” with siter Tugs Linesman and Winchman. I was working for Mirrless and she was one of my first jobs as a Marine Service Engineer in 1980 to check some con rods. They looked a lot better in those days.

    I rebuilt her startboard main engine in Bilbao after a crank failure, while they stuck on the tree house as you say. The following sea trials were wicked – even the Cheif Engineer was sick!

    Fond memories, nice to see the pictures.
