Henk, what do you suppose. Will the URS-tugs have the Smit-emblem on the 'funnels' after 01-07-2011.

Maybe not in the nearby future because this message was as a thunderstorm in Belgium, already struggling with governmental problems between two differant kind of Belgians.
I think that will have a change, yes, but something like Svitzer did: Not a Smit sighn, not a Union sighn, but something in between or even something new. Bos/Kalis maybe?

Due to a very bad sight in the wheelhouse up to the bow of an assisting vessel, Union decided for GRIZZLY as well as for UNION KODIAK wich I will place in the future, to build a new wheelhouse top at their own yard in Antwerpen. Thanks to Richard Wisse who sended me the message and some pictures from- and with the new wheelhouse-top.

Well, Maybe, I don't know if the Belgians do have something with a bactery or something? I prefer to eat my own tomato's and not the Belgian ones if you don't mind? :D :D
