Might have been an early birthday present too.
She was commisioned on the 11th November originally.
Might be the old man's birthday too, Tugs do that sometimes.

Sunrise Beach, Muizenberg


In the right of the photo you can just barely make out one of the navy tugs from Simons Town that came to try and pull it off the beach with no luck.
