Atlantic Compass Departs for Hamburg

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2014

ATLANTIC COMPASS departing Gladstone River Entrance bound for Hamburg on the early afternoon of May 17, 2014 assisted by SMIT BARBADOS. Note how on exiting the lock the tug's mast is folded down to enable her to fit in the lock under the bow of the G3 class container ship. On leaving the lock, as the tug swings around and takes up the strain the mast can be seen being lifted to the upright position.
