Must be FAIRPLAY II or III, with part of the number obscured by the rope as it is part of the same photo with FAIRPLAY I at download/file.php?id=27240

One question David: how can you be so sure that is nr I ? I can only see a company name, but not her number. Do I miss something?

I cannot be 100% certain, but it is clear from this photo that Tiedemann did not generally paint up "Fairplay" amidships on his tugs - it's missing from the FAIRPLAY IV, and from another one on the extreme left of the whole photo (see below - in all, there are five Tiedemann FAIRPLAYs in the photo). And in any case, his business wasn't called "Fairplay" - if he wanted to put his company name on, he probably would have put "Carl Tiedemann".

It is also noted in "Hamburg Tugs" that FAIRPLAY I did not actally have the "I" painted on the hull until the 1930s. For these reason I do think that there is a high likelihood that "FAIRPLAY" is the name of the tug in download/file.php?id=27240

Other photos of these tugs in Tiedemann's days would no doubt help towards certainty.

Sounds fair enough David. I can agree with that!
