This week’s highlight was the 223 foot “Super Yacht Archimedes” passing through the KVK on her way to Southampton (UK). She is owned by the founder of the Hedge Fund “Renaissance Technologies”. The usual parade of tug boats and a RoRo topped off the week.

The day before Earth Day, Tuesday, was an enjoyable day at the office with great lighting along with a lot of traffic which proved to be very productive.

Highlights of the day were the giant Dredge Super Chief, and the 1st. time seen tug Kristen Grace towing a large crane barge. (Click photos to enlarge.)
