hi,

back again !
And thank God for that - I was beginning to despair..... :)

As for the monumental ''towing job'' that the litte BOGOTA performed, is was either m/v OSORNO or s/s HAVELLAND -
(I have read conflicting stories about which) - that suffered machinery problems half-way from South America, and needed towing the rest of the way to Japan.
Perhaps our PB can enlighten us of which ship it really was?

Next question comes from Niedersachsen......Varjag

Thank you ! ... and all sources I have available say indeed that it was OSORNO (of later fame) that was towed.

Next question ... regrettably, the photographer missed the major part of the ship :lol: ... what ship ?

hi, Aleks,

a Räumboot; difficult to say which batch (the MES does not continue to the stern).

Possibly after the war (with radar and a new hull number) ?

Hello!
I know the question is rather difficult, so try to name at least the country where this ship served after WW2.
Otherwise, I'll give a hint tomorrow.

Best regards, Aleks
