Dank je wel Bert ja dit was inderdaad een leuk moment,de kapitein van de sleper riep ons toe,sorry maar ik kom niet meer vooruit! Toen hebben we drie dagen stil gelegen in het ijs,wachtend op een sterke jongen,en die kwam! jammer genoeg in het donker,en geen foto,s! Groeten! Tjeert

Greetings Tjeert ;) I really enjoy your B+W photos from the past, I am sure they must hold many good memories for you also.

As for the tugboat, the engine is very powerful and delivers much thrust, enough to drive the boat upwards, onto the ice, as can be seen in this photo. She was too light to be effective don't you think?.

Kind regards!

Thank you very much Jim yes you're right that was the problem but she also had less power to go through,so we stick in the ice for three days! And i did take a walk on the ice to a small island and saw some sea eagles,and no camera with me,a shame was,nt it? Kind regards! Tjeert
