In the quest to bring more photographs and information to the maritime interested public about the ships built at the
Leith Shipyards we now have the following photographs on the website along
with many more shown and still to be shown.
“Knowledge not passed on is lost”
The dangers of Ocean Going Salvage and the power required to tow Super Tankers is amply shown here in the following two photographs sent into the Leith Shipyards website by Bob Terry one of the crew on the mighty Ocean going tug Wolraad Woltemade Ship No 516
|A tow on this ship that is on fire shows some of the danger involved in Ocean Going Salvage work, nothing that the Wolraad Woltemade could not handle from this photograph taken by Bob Terry in 1982 and shown by permission|
