Baron bollard

An old bollard with the writing: BARON BANFIELD.

For a long time on this bollard was docked the largest tugboat owned by the Tripcovich Shipping Agency, the A.H. Baron Banfield, a type of tug that provides assistance to offshore platforms (A.H. is for Anchor Handling).

The Shipping Agency Tripcovich bought it second hand in 1987 and held it until 1992.

Tomorrow I will show the tugboat and where it was moored.
