    Dear sirs,
    Thanks for an interesting ite with all tugs and happenings!

    Just want to comment that tugboat “Boss” has a bollard pull of 57tons and an indirect of 106tons in escort mode. I have been onboard this tug many times during the years since she was new in 1995. She is a fantastic tug right through in sea, to tow with, in escort and the living conditions inside is the best possible standard.

    Tugboat “Bonden” was built in 1975 and given the name “Bonden” after a very small island in the Bohus arcipelago. Her older sisters “Bohus” and “Dynan” has name connected to water but the name “Bonden” does not suit a ship!!! It was not a popular decision to take this name! I have heard this story from the chief engineer who was on the ASI-verken shipyard when she was built.
    “Bonden” was sold to the Stockholm harbour and renamed “Heimdal”. When she was sold back to Roda Bolaget in the early 90’s she got her original name back “Bonden”. She has the sama Pielstick 6-cyl engine as her sisters but a different turbine, that give her a better “kick” and reach easily 39tons bp and 42tons 110% as new.
    Two years ago she was out for an accident in the Malmo harbour, south of Sweden. A car carrier run into her aftdeck and damaged the propeller, rudder and gave some heavy dents to the hull. Even if she is an old lady, she has been kept in an exellent shape all over. She is also a very good icebreaker. therefore Svitzer decided to give her a chance and repaired her to shape as new. The raisable fire monitors in the main mast was then removed.

    Best and kind regards
