    I saw that tug “TARALGA” yesterday on his way out to Woorim. He seemed to be in a hurry. Flank speed about 6knots and pushed half of Moreton bay out of the way as he sped out. What a weapon!!
    It has about half a metre of freeboard.

    Someone should take a photo of the dredging behemoth in action or dormant, and post it in this thread
    I want to see what it looks like and maybe some others might who can't actually get out there on a boat.
